Montgomery County Response Filed on MOE Debate

Montgomery County has filed its response to the recent petition before the State Board of Education, seeking “clarifications” to the maintenance of effort laws. The State Board has yet to indicate a definitive path toward resolution for these issues (questioning the process for a county that may be unable to meet MOE for a given year, and questioning the ability of county councils to cut the education budget).

Concern has also been raised in Annapolis about the uncertainty cast by the County Board’s petition (and the lengthy legal wrangling that may be required to fully resolve the matter), and may trigger action before the General Assembly.
