MCPS launches new attendance policy

On August 29, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) launched a new county-wide attendance policy to ensure student attendance without disproportionately affecting student populations.

New cell phone policy introduced

The Blair administration will take part in an initiative to expand cell phone use in school for the upcoming academic year. The program, which was piloted at 10 other Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) last year, allows students to use cell phones before and after the school day, and during their lunch periods. The policy was proposed at a countywide principal's meeting where principals from all 26 MCPS high schools signed on to the initiative after it received support from Student Government Association (SGA) members and Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) participants at the Instructional Leadership Team retreat in July.
