Patrons of Blue Valley Schools who have an interest in recreation and community service are invited to apply for a position on the Blue Valley Recreation Commission (BVRC). No previous recreation commission experience is required. The open positions are in the northwest and northeast districts. The deadline for applications is Friday, June 1, 2018.

(BVSD Release)

Seven commissioners, all members of the community, are appointed by the Blue Valley Board of Education to serve staggered four-year terms. Two commissioners are appointed from each of the three board member districts and one is an at-large appointment open to a person residing anywhere within the district boundaries. The two openings are in the northwest and the northeast districts.The term is four years, beginning Aug. 1, 2018 through July 31, 2022.

The school district's involvement with the commission is limited by statute, holding it responsible for the BVRC by appointing its commissioners, approving the budget and authorizing lease agreements. Any resident interested in the position on the commission is invited to send a completed application, letter of interest and résumé, no later than June 1, 2018, to Sarah Vaughn, Board Clerk, Blue Valley Schools, 15020 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, KS 66283. Application and boundary information are available online here.

The Blue Valley Board of Education will oversee the search process and conduct interviews at the end of May or in early June. The BVRC is a policy-setting board, typically meeting at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. It is important that commissioners are able to attend these meetings. In addition, commissioners serve on several committees, represent the commission at events and must be available for staff consultation. They receive no pay for their service to the commission.
