Mr. Greg Edmundson, Compliance Unit: Systemwide Child Abuse & Neglect / Title IX Contact
The Compliance Unit (Operational Excellence, Community Partnerships and
Engagement) The Office of the
Chief of Staff works with the Compliance Unit to monitor the implementation of
policies, procedures, and system and local processes, in key areas of
compliance to provide leadership, support and interventions to address factors
that create barriers to student success. The mission of the Compliance
Unit is to serve as a resource for schools and central offices in providing
institutional accountability and ensuring that every staff member is aware of
our MCPS expectations and has the necessary information to create and maintain
a lawful, positive, safe, and healthy climate and culture in which all adults
and students are able to thrive and do their best work. The unit works
collaboratively with schools, the Office of the General Counsel and other MCPS
offices, and community agencies to ensure consistency and coherence with
implementation of policies and regulations such as: issues related to human
relations, Title IX; bullying, harassment, and intimidation; and reporting and
recognizing child abuse and neglect.
Montgomery County Board Policy ACA, Nondiscrimination, Equity, and Cultural Proficiency, grounded in the Board of Education's five core values of: learning, respect, relationships, equity, and excellence; reflects the district's commitment to support student and staff success, regardless of actual or perceived personal characteristics. This policy also articulates implementation strategies including the “identification of multiple indicators necessary to monitor student performance and specific data that will be used to ensure accountability for student school, and systemwide performance to reduce variability and outcomes and to ensure that academic outcomes will not be predictable by personal characteristics.” The policy further states that the superintendent of schools will designate an appropriate lead to implement this policy with support from other offices as appropriate and assume responsibility for among other responsibilities: monitoring and ensuring MCPS compliance with our federal, state, and local nondiscrimination laws, promptly investigating and resolving complaints of discrimination, promoting training and outreach to improve equity and cultural proficiency, and maintaining appropriate records.
