Montgomery County to Hold Education Budget Hearings

Five Community Meetings About the Education Budget

UPDATE: The February 20 snowstorm caused the cancellation of the meeting at Neelsville Middle School so it will now take place on April 4.

Montgomery County Council Education Committee Chair Craig Rice, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Superintendent Jack Smith, and Montgomery College President DeRionne Pollard are hosting five Education Budget meetings.

The purpose of the meetings is to provide information on the programs and budgets of the County’s public school system and its community college.

The officials will explain the following:

  • How budget decisions are made;
  • The budget process;
  • Identify opportunities for residents to be involved with budget decisions.
