Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) invite input for the 2024-25 school year calendar through a survey found on the school district’s website.
Each year, MCPS considers educational interests, operational needs, mandated school closures by state law, compliance with minimum state instructional days (180 days) and credit hour (1,080 hours) requirements, inclement weather and other emergencies, staff professional days and early release days, and alignment with assessment schedules as part of the process to develop the calendar.
It's not too late to provide feedback on the design of the 2024-2025 calendar.
We will consider educational interests, operational needs, credit hour requirements and more. https://t.co/Q5lTRW2QEl

MPCS will consider the feedback received through the survey to develop the calendar for the next school year. Typically, the superintendent presents two alternative calendars to the School Board who then determines the calendar.
The survey has just six questions. Specifically, survey takers may express their preferences for the first day of school—before or after Labor Day, Thanksgiving Week, spring break and winter break. The survey is available in multiple languages.
