The arrival of Monique O’Grady on the Arlington School Board has caused a reshuffling of some committee assignments among the five members of the elected body.
New liaison assignments set for approval at the board’s Jan. 4 meeting give O’Grady the following civic associations to which she will serve as liaison:
Arlington East Falls Church; Ashton Heights; Ballston-Virginia Square; Columbia Forest; Fairlington; Foxcroft Heights; Highland Park-Overlee Knolls; Lyon Village; Maywood; North Highlands; Shirlington; Tara-Leeway Heights; Waycroft-Woodlawn; and Westover Village.
In addition, O’Grady will serve as School Board liaison to the Arlington Partnership for Children, Youth and Families; Arlington Special Education Advisory Committee; and Fairlington-Shirlington Neighborhood Conservation Area.
O’Grady’s school-liaison assignments will be Abingdon, Arlington Science Focus, Claremont Immersion, Drew Model and Key Immerson elementary schools; Swanson Middle School; and Arlington Community High School.
O’Grady last May defeated incumbent School Board member James Lander in a three-way Arlington County Democratic Committee caucus, and went on to win a three-way general-election victory on Nov. 7. Like all five School Board members, she holds an at-large seat.
