The MCPS Compliance Unit is responsible for the oversight, monitoring, and coordination of applicable Federal, State and Local regulatory compliance. This unit provides the infrastructure for institutional accountability and ensures every staff member is aware of our MCPS expectations and has the necessary information to create and maintain a lawful, positive, safe, and healthy climate and culture in which all adults and students are able to thrive and do their best work.
Montgomery County Board Policy ACA, Nondiscrimination, Equity, and Cultural Proficiency, grounded in the Board of Education's five core values of: learning, respect, relationships, equity, and excellence; reflects the district's commitment to support student and staff success, regardless of actual or perceived personal characteristics. This policy also articulates implementation strategies including the “identification of multiple indicators necessary to monitor student performance and specific data that will be used to ensure accountability for student school, and systemwide performance to reduce variability and outcomes and to ensure that academic outcomes will not be predictable by personal characteristics.” The policy further states that the superintendent of schools will designate an appropriate lead to implement this policy with support from other offices as appropriate and assume responsibility for among other responsibilities: monitoring and ensuring MCPS compliance with our federal, state, and local nondiscrimination laws, promptly investigating and resolving complaints of discrimination, promoting training and outreach to improve equity and cultural proficiency, and maintaining appropriate records.
