The Board of Education will transmit its $2.52 billion Fiscal Year 2018 operating budget request to Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett and the Montgomery County Council by March 1. The County Executive is expected to release his FY 2018 operating budget recommendation by March 15. The County Council will consider the budget this spring with final approval happening in late May.
It is critical that our elected leaders hear from you about the essential role school plays in your child’s life and the importance of giving students access to the opportunities and resources they need to be college and career ready.
You can testify at the Montgomery County Council public hearings on the FY 2018 Operating Budget. Call 240-777-7803 beginning March 15 to sign up to testify.
