The Board took tentative action on two policies during its April 12, 2018, meeting.  Policy FAA, Long-range Education Facilities Planning and Policy JED, Residency, Tuition, and Enrollment.

 

Policy FAA

On April 12, 2018, the Montgomery County Board of Education tentatively approved revisions Policy FAA, Long-range Education Facilities Planning, including a change in the policy name to Educational Facilities Planning.

 

The policy incorporates elements from Policy FKB, Sustaining and Modernizing Buildings, as well as language from the MGT of America Consulting report relative to the growth management plan for MCPS.  Changes to the policy address key facility indicators for the assessment process; the overall process of facilities planning; and the integration of community input during every stage of the capital budget planning process.

 

Policy JED

On April 12, 2018, the Montgomery County Board of Education tentatively approved revisions to Policy JED, Residency, Tuition, and Enrollment, and reclassifying the policy index name to Policy JEA.

 

The proposed revisions affirm the Board's commitment to an effective, efficient, and equitable enrollment process for all qualified Montgomery County students and to set forth the enrollment of resident and nonresident students in accordance with Maryland law.  The draft of tentatively approved Policy JED is available for public comment until Friday, July 6, 2018.
