Public Comment Sought on Revised Residency Policy

February 18, 2004
The Board of Education has requested community comment on a revised policy (JED) on residency, tuition, and enrollment.

The revised Policy JED, Residency, Tuition, and Enrollment, sets forth the criteria for determining residency before a student is enrolled in the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). It further establishes an efficient and equitable enrollment process for all eligible Montgomery County school-age children, and stipulates that tuition rates for out-of-county students will be established annually by the Board of Education upon recommendation of the superintendent of schools.

Copies of the revised policy are available through the Department of Communications by calling 301-279-3391 or on the web at the link below.

Individuals who wish to provide comments should respond in writing by April 20, 2004. All responses should be sent to the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, 850 Hungerford Drive, Rockville, Maryland 20850. The responses will be shared with the Board of Education.
