ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WBOC/AP)- Gov. Martin O'Malley has appointed members of a new board to focus on school safety issues.

The governor on Monday named five members to the Maryland Center for School Safety Governing Board. The appointments went into effect immediately.

The board includes four members of the public, including Lorig Charkoudian, the executive director of Community Mediation Maryland and a parent of a public school student. O'Malley also appointed Theresa Detorie, the director of security at the Bryn Mawr School for Girls, as a representative of a nonpublic school.

Valerie Carr, a school bus driver with 25 years of experience with the Prince George's County Public Schools Transportation Department, will serve as a representative of school bus drivers. And Elizabeth Watson Ray, a special education teacher at Aberdeen Middle School, has been appointed as an undesignated public member. 

State Superintendent of Schools Lillian Lowery will chair the board.

The board will focus on disseminating information on best practices, providing training and technical assistance and gathering data on school safety issues.
