FY 2019 Operating Budget: Learn More, Provide Input
On December 19, Superintendent Jack Smith proposed a $2.59 billion Operating Budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019. MCPS wants to hear your thoughts and ideas on the budget. The district has created resources to help parents, students and community members understand the budget and advocate for its funding. These resources can be found on the MCPS budget webpage.
Be sure to share your ideas and views on the importance of funding the MCPS operating budget with our elected Montgomery County officials—the Montgomery County Board of Education, the County Executive, and the Montgomery County Council—through emails, letters and testimonials. The Board of Education will hold public hearings at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 4 and Jan. 10. The Board will hold its work sessions on the budget at 5 p.m. on Jan. 18 and Jan. 25; it is expected to take action on the budget at its Feb. 13 meeting.
More information on providing testimony to the Board of Education is available here.
