Montgomery County Public Schools students in grades 4-12 will be taking an age appropriate, anonymous survey in this month regarding institutional racism in Montgomery County schools.
Parents and guardians should check their email for a survey on racial and systemic barriers in MCPS. The anonymous survey will help us to better understand how racism affects teaching, learning and parent engagement. The survey is due by Thursday, March 31.
On February 2nd, Monifa McKnight provided an update on the Antiracist Audit.
Parents that do not want their children to participate in the survey have the ability to opt-out.
