Monique O’Grady Arlington School Board

Monique O’Grady launched her bid for Arlington School Board at the March 1, 2017, meeting of the Arlington County Democratic Committee.

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.
