Public Forums

All Montgomery County citizens are invited to attend a series of public forums that have been scheduled to gather community comment on the educational priorities and desired leadership qualities of the next superintendent of the Montgomery County Public Schools.

The forums will be held throughout the county on three consecutive evenings at two locations each evening.

What if I Can't Attend a Forum?

If unable to attend one of the public forums, community members are invited to provide input on the various attributes and characteristics desired in our next superintendent by completing our online superintendent profile survey which will be available mid-January through early February 2011. Information from the public forums and surveys will be shared with the Board of Education members.
