Community Involvement, reflects the Board’s commitment to fostering and supporting community interest and involvement in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). Policy IGN, Combating Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse, provides a framework for creating and maintaining a safe environment for teaching, learning, and working within MCPS that is free of tobacco, drugs, alcohol, and other intoxicants.

the MCPS website.
