Board Policies & MCPS Regulations

About Policies and Regulations

It is the responsibility of the Montgomery County Board of Education Policy Management Committee to meet and develop or revise Board policy as necessary. The committee meets with appropriate staff to develop a draft policy (or to make revisions to policy) which it then presents to the Board for discussion and action.
