The Montgomery County Board of Education is seeking public comment on proposed revisions to Policy JEE, Student Transfers. This policy sets the standard under which MCPS students may be granted a transfer, referred to as a Change of School Assignment (COSA), to attend a school other than their home school or the school assigned to them under their Individualized Education Program (IEP). The public comment period for this policy will remain open until Sept. 30, 2013. The Board of Education’s Policy Committee will then consider all public comments before making a recommendation to the full Board later this fall. Any changes made to the policy will not impact the transfer requests for the 2013-2014 school year. The Board of Education’s Policy Committee introduced the proposed changes to provide clarity and consistency in the COSA policy. Visit the MCPS website to learn more about the proposed changes and how to comment.
