Statement From Board President Wolff and Superintendent Smith on the Departure of Dr. DeRionne Pollard

Dr. DeRionne Pollard's departure from Montgomery College is a significant loss for Montgomery County. She has been a tremendous leader and transformed the college into a premier institution in our county, state and nation. Her leadership of the college and visionary partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) was instrumental in ensuring that thousands of students continued to receive a world-class education after graduating from MCPS. Initiatives, such as the  Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES)  program,  provided a much-needed pathway to higher education for county students who might not have had such an opportunity.

On February 9, the Board of Education voted to approve MCPS' 2021 Recovery Plan. Students in specific special education and career and technical education programs will return to buildings on March 1. Students in kindergarten through third grade will begin to return to buildings in phases starting March 15. Families will hear directly from their schools about their specific plans. Please note that the number of students returning to school, staffing and grade-level details will impact the type of experience your child’s school creates. Students remaining in virtual-only instruction will continue to engage with their teachers and classmates through established platforms. Students returning to in-person learning will experience a variety of instructional approaches to meet their learning needs .
