Updates for Middle School Math and English Language Arts for 2019-2020 and Beyond

MCPS is beginning the implementation of a three year roll-out of curricular and instructional materials and supports for elementary and middle English Language Arts (ELA) and Math to maintain high levels of teaching and learning for all students. Parent and community members are encouraged to come learn more from MCPS staff and the new curriculum vendors about what will be implemented in our schools. There will be a presentation of both the ELA and Math curricular and instructional materials and supports and an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

Community Input Sought for School and Cluster Boundary Analysis

Earlier this year, the Montgomery County Board of Education adopted a resolution asking the superintendent to utilize external consultants to conduct an in-depth review and analysis of how existing school and cluster boundaries support or hinder the effective use of school facilities in MCPS. To help gather input from the community regarding the scope of work for the consultants, the framework for the assessment of the district’s school and cluster boundaries, and how the consultants will focus their efforts and analysis, MCPS is hosting four regional community conversations.

These conversations will be held from 7–9 p.m. on the following dates and locations:

  • April 4: Quince Orchard High School 15800 Quince Orchard Road, Gaithersburg
  • April 10: John F. Kennedy High School 1901 Randolph Road, Silver Spring
  • April 11: Earle B. Wood 14615 Bauer Dr., Rockville
  • April 23: Walter Johnson High School 6400 Rock Spring Dr., Bethesda

(Please note: No specific boundary recommendations are under consideration. The purpose of the conversations is to obtain feedback to inform the work of the consultants.)

To help us prepare for the event, please RSVP at the following link.

If you are unable to attend, but would like to offer feedback, you can provide input online here.
