Rice to Host Public Forum on School Budgets at Kingsview Middle School

March 3, 2015

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

Last night, County Councilmember Craig Rice began a series of public forums seeking public input and providing information on the programs and budgets of the County’s public school system and its community college.

   Last night's forum was the first of five public forums to be held throughout the County. One will be held locally in Germantown on March 16 at Kingsview Middle School. Other public form which will continue at Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring on March 9; Gaithersburg High School on March 11; and Churchill High School in Potomac on March 23.

   Craig Rice is the Montgomery County Council Education Committee Chair, and will be joined by Montgomery County Public Schools Acting Chief Operating Officer Andrew Zuckerman and Montgomery College President DeRionne Pollard for the education forums.

    "These forums will provide an opportunity for residents to have their questions answered about the education budgets at both the State and County level from kindergarten through the early years of college,” said Rice. “We will talk about how budget decisions are made, and will work to explain the circumstances concerning the new budget we are addressing for the fiscal year that begins on July 1. We also will discuss the opportunities residents will have to influence budget decisions. And in this early stage of the budget process, we want to hear from residents about their concerns, their priorities and how they fit with the amount of funding available.”
