Comment Sought on Informational Material Policy

May 2, 2012
The Montgomery County Board of Education is seeking community comment regarding revisions to Board Policy CNA, Informational Material and Announcements. This policy guides and informs the public and staff about the procedures for displaying and distributing printed informational materials and announcements in schools.

Among the proposed revisions, non-profit organizations would still be allowed to distribute flyers and other printed materials in elementary schools, but such distribution would no longer be permitted in middle schools and high schools. The school system, government agencies and parent-teacher associations would still be allowed to distribute printed informational materials in all schools at any time during the year.

A copy of the
draft policy is available through the Department of Public Information and Web Services by calling 301-279-3853. You also can access the documents on the MCPS website.

Individuals who wish to provide comments should respond in writing by Wednesday, May 30, 2012. All responses should be sent to the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, 850 Hungerford Drive, Room 122, Rockville, Maryland 20850 or sent by email to the Board of Education at All responses will be shared with the Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools.
