The Howard County Board of Education is reviewing 26 applications for ombudsman, a position that has been vacant for the past four months. At its next meeting, the school board will set a new policy for the ombudsman, which will include an official performance evaluation - something that has been missing from the position. A board member stressed that none of the policy changes is tied to the performance of the district's first ombudsman, Robin Shell. (Baltimore Sun.)
