Montgomery County Board of Education will meet today at the Carver Educational Services Center, 850 Hungerford Drive in Rockville.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m., with public agenda items beginning at 10 a.m. One item on the agenda is a discussion on the calendar for the next school year.

Since 2016, Montgomery County has scheduled a day off for students as a professional day for teachers on the Muslim holy day of Eid al-Fitr. The date of Eid is based on a lunar calendar and therefore shifts from year to year.  The three proposals for the 2020-2021 school year does not include Eid as a day off (expected to fall on May 13, 2021).

Many are expected to attend the meeting today to express their support for a day off school for Eid-al-Fitr.

The public portion of the meeting will be broadcast live on the Montgomery County Public Schools website and on MCPS TV (Comcast Channel 34).

The agenda, with related materials attached, can be found on the Board of Education’s BoardDocs site.
