Here's the February 23, 2010, decision from the Maryland State Board of Education where the State Board of Education declares they are "concerned about the clarity of the transfer policy." The State Board states that "...further explanation need not be made to us. It should be made to parents with children in paired schools so that they understand when the sibling exemption applies and when it does not."
Has MCPS done what the State Board requested, have they clarified the transfer policy so that parents can understand it?
Note that MCPS' Board of Education ASKED for this decision from the State Board. This was probably not what they expected to hear from the State Board.
