      Board Expenses

      Board Expenses

      On Monday, July 28, 2014, the Montgomery County Board of Education (Board) approved sweeping changes to the processes and guidelines that govern the payment of expenses that Board members incur as a part of their work. Among the changes, Board members will no longer use district-funded credit cards; will receive a per diem allowance when attending professional conferences; and will employ a new process for determining public events, conferences, and meetings that Board members can attend at the district’s expense.

      The changes are reflected in the Board Member Compensation and Expense Standards section of the Board’s Handbook, as well as the new and updated expense forms:

      Quarterly Deliberations

      Quarterly Deliberations

      The Board has implemented a process to discuss and consider pending action requests by the community.

      During the Board’s quarterly deliberations of these requests, the Board will evaluate each pending action request with specific reference to work priorities already set for the year (the annual work plan) and determine the appropriate prioritization. The Board will also expressly consider any implication for existing staff capacity/resources.

      The Board will provide a report about the outcome of its quarterly deliberations at a future Board meeting, as well as post information to this section of the Board’s webpage.
