CAPA举办2016年教育委员会候选人见面会

 

Chinese American Parent Association of Howard County (CAPA, 哈维郡华裔家长联合会)将组织举办2016年教育委员会候选人见面会。

 

时间:4月10日(星期日)1:30 - 3:45pm

地点:Howard High School Cafeteria

        8700 Old Annapolis Road, Ellicott City, MD 21043

 

      2016 年大选在即,Howard County的华裔家长在关注着教育局委员(BOE)的选举。大家越来越意识到BOE的政策制定和我们孩子的教育息息相关,而我们作为家长,社区成员和纳税人有权利也有义务选出能提高教育水准,有效使用资金,促进社区发展及代表我们利益的BOE委员。同时,参与BOE选举也可以使我们家长学习美国的民主选举制度和运行过程,和孩子一起成长为美国的合格公民,真正成为这个社会的主流。

 

      4月26日是马里兰primary选举日,BOE候选人将参加 第一轮选举,从11位参选人中选出6位进入下一轮。11月8日大选日,这6位候选人将竞争3个BOE委员的位子。

 

      为了便于大家深入了解候选人,CAPA向11位候选人发出了邀请,他们将在见面会上做自我介绍,并回答我们事先准备好的问题,之后有自由问答时间,任何与会者都可以向候选人提问。下面是暂定的见面会日程安排。 

 

1.  Opening remarks by CAPA President: Mrs. Jean Xu – 5 minutes
2.  Self-introductions of the 2016 BOE candidates – 3 minutes each

3.  First set of questions - 30 minutes
4.  Break – 15 minutes

5.  Second set of questions - 30 minutes
6.  Questions & Answers –  30 minutes
7.  Closing remarks by Dr. Chao Wu – 5 minutes

 

     通过这次见面会,我们希望能增进华裔家长对候选人的了解,在选举时能做出更好地判断,不盲目地投票。同时我们也希望BOE候选人能了解我们的诉求,看到我们对学校事务的深度关切,为将来的有效沟通开通渠道。

 

    希望大家积极参加见面会,非公民也可参加,并欢迎带学龄孩子参加。为维持会场秩序,请不要带学龄前儿童来会场。

 

    特别感谢哥城中文学校(Chinese Language School of Columbia)提供的场地,请大家在现场遵守CLSC的校规和秩序。

 

    为便于组织,请有意参加的提前报名。报名网址 http://goo.gl/forms/qsIGXWWTkO

     The  2016 primary election is quickly approaching. Eleven BOE candidates have filed for the primary election on Tuesday, April 26, 2016.

     Education is one of the top priorities for the Asian American families. CAPA has invited all the candidates for the HCPSS Board of Education to participate in a forum on Sunday, April 10, 2016. The event is designed to help Chinese American parents to understand the candidate's vision for the Howard County Public School system, particularly their position on policies that are of great concern to Chinese American parents. The event will help our community members make an informed decision and vote for the best candidates for our children's education.
