Montgomery County Board of Education

According to a local school newsletter, the first proposal for a non-voting student representative to join the Montgomery County Board of Education in Maryland emerged in 1975.

In 1977, the Maryland General Assembly amended Section 3-701 of the Education Article of the Annotated Code of the Public General laws of Maryland to create a nonvoting student seat on local boards of education.

During the 1989 session of the Maryland General Assembly, Section 3-701 was again amended and established a limited vote for the student member.
