Sirs and Madams:
MCPS’ preparation of an “equity budget” would be a timely complement to the forthcoming OLO achievement gap report and MCPS Strategic Plan revision.
The Superintendent’s 2013-2014 Operating Budget released today is a central document in the current course of strategic planning. Planning began with the Board’s tentative approval of new Core Values, and will continue both with the County Council Office of Legislative Oversight’s [OLO] reevaluation of MCPS’ achievement gap progress and Northeast and Downcounty Consortia programs and with the reformulation of the Strategic Plan for the Starr era.
