Congratulations Graduates!

The Board extends heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2024 and everyone celebrating with them! Every graduate is prepared to embark on a new journey thanks to their hard work and support of the MCPS community. The Board of Education looks forward to the continuing celebrations. 

Planning for Budget Adjustments

The Montgomery County Board of Education and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) are working hard to make adjustments from our original proposed budget request to meet the County Council’s approved budget allocation. Last week, we shared details about the adjustments we are considering. As we work through this process, please know your comments are heard and valued. The MCPS FY 2025 budget is scheduled to be approved at the Board’s June 11 business meeting

Superintendent Search

As many of you are aware, the state of Maryland requires county school superintendent appointments to be finalized by July 1. Now that we are moving into June, you may be wondering if the search for MCPS’ next superintendent is on track.

The Board is pleased to report that it is. A number of qualified applicants are being interviewed. In addition to interviews, the Board reviews supporting information such as professional references, background checks, and more.

A decision this important must be made thoughtfully. Therefore, if more time is needed beyond the July 1 deadline, an interim superintendent will be appointed. 

The Board anticipates an announcement regarding the status of the search soon. We ask the public to continue to be patient and respect candidates’ right to privacy during this critical stage of the process.
