MCPS and Teachers Union Reach Agreement on Special Educator Incentives
Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) has been working to ensure that it is fully staffed for the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 29. One of the most significant hiring challenges has been for those who work in special education.

This agreement was ratified and signed by both parties on Wednesday, Aug. 24.
The agreement has two components:
MCPS expects that the incentive for dual-certificated teachers to move into special education roles will alleviate some of the remaining 102 full- and part-time special education vacancies. Since Friday, Aug. 19, MCPS has received more than 40 responses and the district is working to determine if those transfer requests fit within the parameters of the agreement.
