Community Forum Honoring Religious Diversity
The Community Forum Honoring Religious Diversity in Montgomery County on June 10, culminated lengthy collaboration between the Education Committee of the FaithCommunity Working Group and the Superintendent's Office and Board of Education. The result was historic as In excess of 100 MCPS officials, faith leaders, principals, teachers, parents and students received the draft Guidelines for Respecting Religious Diversity.
The Guidelines go further than any simular document by their clear definition of terms and range of issues and policies. In the introduction Patricia O'Neil, President of the Montgomery County Board of Education, and Larry Bowers, Interim Superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools, commend the Education Committee, lead by Rabbi Batya Steinlauf, and added, "These partnerships deepen our commitment to our core values of Learning, Relationships, Respect, Excellence and Equity."
The Guidelines are scheduled for public distribution to all MCPS staff and families with children in Montgomery County Public Schools in August.
