Parents Respond to MCPS Re-Opening Recovery Efforts

Some parents are speaking out now that Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Jack Smith, announced the district’s initial considerations and plans for the upcoming school year.

The MCPS Fall 2020:Reimagine, Reopen, Recover draft plan includes details of what the school system expects to happen when school starts on August 31 for all students. MCPS anticipates beginning the school year in a virtual-only instructional model. The draft also states that students will gradually return to schools on a rotational schedule for in-person learning with reduced class sizes. MCPS officials say things could change depending on public health conditions and implementation experience.

Some parents and students have a variety of concerns, according to the Montgomery County Council of Parent-Teacher Associations. MyMCMedia spoke with MCCPTA President Cythina Simonson for her perspective.
