Private Parochial Schools

Division of Business, Fiscal, and information Systems (DBFIS) supervises the implementation of Child Find procedures for students whose parents choose to enroll their children in Private Parochial Schools. In addition, DBFIS oversees the countywide summer assessment process to support schools in conducting IEP procedures within mandated timelines for students who attend Private Parochial Schools and seek special education screening or services in Montgomery County Public Schools.

What We Do

  • Answer questions from parents and staff related to the Private Parochial School processes
  • Help facilitate the special education screening process between private school parents and MCPS schools
  • Provide summer assessment for special education screening
  • Act as a liaison between the Private Parochial Schools and MCPS schools
  • Provide professional development to both MCPS and Private Parochial School administrators, staff, and parents
