After $400 million plus in budget cuts over recent years, and in the face of continued increases in enrollment, poverty and ESOL needs, there are very important issues at stake for our schools.
The Governor's proposal to shift a portion of the teacher pension funding obligation from the State to the counties, and the efforts to close loopholes in the Maintenance of Effort Law and obtain a waiver for the $26 million penalty facing our schools will be front and center during this budget cycle.
Come and hear directly from Board of Education Members about what is in the proposed MCPS Operating Budget, which will be approved by the Board on February14th. Also, please come and hear from Members of the Montgomery County Council about funding prospects for FY 2013 – ask YOUR QUESTIONS and share YOUR CONCERNS as the operating budget funding cycle begins.
