The Board of Education has tentatively approved changes to Board Policy ACA, Human Relations, and recommended changing the name of Policy ACA to Nondiscrimination, Equity, and Cultural Proficiency.

Policy ACA establishes and promotes a framework that prepares all students to live and work in a globally-minded society and fosters a positive learning environment that embraces all unique and individual differences.  It affirms the Board's unwavering commitment that all students and staff demonstrate mutual respect without regard to any individual's actual or perceived personal characteristics.  The draft of Policy ACA is available for public comment until May 26.  Visit www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/departments/policy/policy-for-public-comment.aspx to read the tentative changes and provide comment.
