Forty-two nominations for CPC election received
     The Education Bureau received 42 nominations for the 12th election to the Council on Professional Conduct in Education during the nomination period, which closed on February 24.

     "These nominations comprise 22 nominations from the teacher-nominated category and 20 nominations from the organisation-nominated category," a bureau spokesman said today (February 27).

     "Apart from the elected council members, the Committee on Home-School Co-operation will nominate three parent representatives to the council, and the Permanent Secretary for Education will appoint the Principal Education Officer (Professional Development and Training) and three lay members to the council," he added.

     Voting for the teacher-nominated category will take place at schools on April 6. Serving regular registered teachers, permitted teachers and government school teachers are eligible to vote.

     Since seats in some organisation-nominated categories are being contested, the education organisations concerned will be informed to submit their votes before 4pm on April 24.

     Details of election procedures will be sent to schools and education organisations later.
