County Owes MCPS $1.4 Million. MSDE Finds Error in Budget Calculations

State Superintendent warns Montgomery County that local income tax revenue will be intercepted to enforce law

Does your local school need another teacher? 

Well, good news! On July 1, 2015, the Maryland State Superintendent wrote to County Executive Ike Leggett and notified him of an error that had been made in the MCPS budget calculations.  Discovery of this error means that MCPS is entitled to an additional $1.4 million under Maryland State law.

The Parents' Coalition has obtained a copy of the letter and is making it public.  See the document below.

If County Executive Ike Leggett got this letter a month ago, why hasn't he made it public?  What about the Board of Education, why haven't they discussed this additional funding that is coming to MCPS?


  1. Wow, now we can buy the rest of MCPS's Chromebooks without PTA's having to troll for donations. *wink*

  2. Chromebooks indeed! More computers in class, more computer-like students: for the "value" of computer-driven education, see here NYBooks article "Trapped in the Virtual Classroom" by Yale professor of English David Bromwich:

  3. No, no no. Now we can cater breakfast. lunch and dinner for MCPS meetings.
