Comment Sought on Early Entrance Policy JEB

January 13, 2006
The Board of Education has again requested community comment regarding its revised Policy JEB, Early Entrance to Prekindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade. The policy creates a process by which decisions regarding early admission to prekindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade are made in Montgomery County Public Schools.

The policy has been further revised after a period of public comment in the fall of 2005 and following additional information provided by the Maryland State Department of Education so as to incorporate a window for consideration of waivers of the cutoff date for admission. The Board considered the revisions to be substantial and desires additional public review and comment before final action is taken.

Individuals who wish to provide comments should respond in writing by February 10, 2006. All responses should be sent to the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, 850 Hungerford Drive, Rockville, Maryland 20850. The responses will be shared with the Board of Education.
