Matthews, NC - The Matthews Board of Commissioners today established the Matthews Committee on Education (MCE) to act in an advisory capacity to the Town Board on matters of interest and importance to students and parents.

“There are few things more important than the education of our children,” said Matthews Mayor Paul Bailey. “Families in Matthews have many schooling options, and it’s important that we are all working together to ensure we are meeting the needs of the community. At a time when we need more collaboration and constructive dialogue, I’m very pleased that the MCE has been established and I look forward to the great work I trust we will accomplish together.”

The MCE will work together with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School (CMS) system, charter schools, private schools and home schools in Matthews to promote a strong, healthy and cooperative relationship amongst them, and to promote equal opportunities for all students who attend Matthews schools.

The MCE will be made up of nine members appointed by the Board for a two-year term. As with all Town advisory boards, the MCE will be subject to all rules and regulations for public bodies contained in North Carolina’s Open Meetings Law.

The Board also acted today to appoint Commissioner Jeff Miller to the CMS Municipal Education Advisory Committee.
