MoCo Board of Education Districtwide Boundary Analysis- Phase One Hearing This Evening

The Montgomery County Board of Education is holding the Districtwide Boundary Analysis-Phase One Public Hearing this evening, Monday, November 18, 2019, at 6:00 p.m.

Per MCPS:

The Districtwide Boundary Analysis is an initiative designed to provide a comprehensive assessment of Montgomery County Public School boundaries by analyzing various data points such as school facility utilization and capacity, student demographics, school assignment and travel patterns.

Why now?

Over the twenty years, student enrollment at Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) has increased by more than 30,000 students. This growth has helped MCPS become one of the largest and most diverse districts in the nation. Unfortunately, facility construction has not been able to keep pace with this significant growth. The overcapacity of many schools, paired with our continued focus on equity and excellence, prompted the Board of Education to initiate an assessment of current school boundaries to ensure that MCPS can continue to provide high-quality facilities that support the educational programming needed to reinforce MCPS’s core values of Learning, Relationships, Respect, Excellence, and Equity.
