On December 5, 2017, the Montgomery County Board of Education tentatively approved amendments to Board Policy IFA, Framework and Structure of Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  The amended policy includes concepts and language that reflects the current priorities of Board Policy IEF, Early Childhood Education, which will be rescinded upon adoption of amended Board Policy IEA.  The proposed amendments to Board Policy IEA affirm the Board's commitment to promoting the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth and development of children in their early learning years through high quality, developmentally appropriate, challenging and comprehensive early childhood and elementary programs.  You can view the crosswalk between Board Policy IEA and Board Policy IEF.  The draft of the tentatively approved Board Policy IEA is available for public comment until Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
