Updated Draft Plan and Guidance Document for the 2020-2021 School Year

MCPS will remain in a virtual-only instructional model through the first semester—January 29, 2021; or until state and local health officials determine conditions in our county allow for students to return safely after the first semester. The updated MCPS Fall 2020: Reimagine, Reopen, Recover Guide reflects this change and provides an overview of our virtual-only learning model for the first semester.

SAT Exams for August 29 Cancelled

Based on the current guidance and in coordination with surrounding peer districts, MCPS has cancelled the August 29th SAT Administration. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, MCPS will collaborate with the College Board and monitor the health and safety guidance as planning for the fall 2020 administration on September 23 and October 14, 2020 approaches.

Comments on Amendments to Student Transfer Board Policy Due by Sept. 1

The Montgomery County Board of Education is proposing amendments to Board Policy JEE, Student Transfers, and is seeking public comment on the amendments. While the Board’s current focus is primarily on the challenge of recovery of education for the 2020-2021 school year, and the Board knows that plans for the reopening of schools for the 2020-2021 school year is also among the highest level of concern for students and parents, it is important that work that impacts future school years continue to move forward as well. Therefore, the Board is extending the public comment period for Policy JEE until September 1, 2020, in preparation for the Board taking Final Action on Policy JEE in the fall.

MCPS To Provide Virtual-only Learning for First Semester

MCPS has determined that the safest choice for the school district is to remain in a virtual-only instructional model for the first semester and for the foreseeable future. This plan will be reassessed in November and will change only if state and local health officials determine conditions in our county allow for students and staff to return safely beginning in the second semester.
