Staff Summary: . The City of Miami Gardens and Miami-Dade County public schools first adopted the Miami Gardens Education Compact on April 18, 2007. The Excellence in Education Council Board is currently inactive. On April 19, 2017, Councilman Williams held a public workshop. At that workshop it was determined that it would be necessary and more effective for the new board members to be appointed by the City Council. 18605 NW 27th Avenue Miami Gardens, Florida 33056 Councilman Williams is proposing the creation of a temporary ad hoc Excellence in Education Council Committee (“Committee”), with each Council member and the Mayor appointing one (1) member, for a total of seven (7) members. The primary responsibility of this “temporary” ad hoc Excellence in Education Council committee would be to advise the City Council on reinstating the Excellence Education Council Board and bringing back recommendations to the City Council as it relates to the composition of the Board as well as to make recommendations on the goals and objectives of the Board. Since the Committee will have a limited purpose, it will terminate upon on final recommendations made to the City Council or one year after all appointments have been made whichever comes first. Proposed Action: That the City Council approves the attached Resolution. Attachment:
