About this Event

YOU CAN IMPACT THE FY2021 MCPS OPERATING BUDGET!

It's that time of the year again. The MCPS Budget Advisory Committee has been meeting since September and will meet once more before Superintendent Smith releases his recommended operating budget for FY2021 on December 18th.

The Operating Budget Testimony Workshop is scheduled for Saturday, January 4, 2020, at Parkland Magnet Middle School.

The morning is dedicated to the MCPS operating budget with breakout work sessions for each committee area. Other areas of focus will certainly be considered if there is someone to lead the session and space available. The afternoon is dedicated to the "Kirwan Commission" with a panel discussion and Q&A.

The Operating Budget Committee (OBC) is reliant upon the Committee Chairs to co-lead a session on your area of expertise. Each will have an OBC member to help with the budget part, but it is your knowledge, experience and stories that will move our budgetary goals forward with the Board Of Education and County Council.

Please confirm your attendance by securing a ticket for each session you plan to attend, morning and/or afternoon. Breakfast provided for morning session attendees. Lunch provided for FULL DAY participants (must have a ticket for and attend the morning and afternoon session).

This is how we make a difference. This is how we impact our schools.
