MCPS Policies & Regulations
About Policies and Regulations
It is the responsibility of the Montgomery County Board of Education Policy Management Committee to meet and develop or revise MCPS policy as necessary. The committee meets with appropriate staff to develop a draft policy (or to make revisions to policy) which it then presents to the Board for discussion and action.
