Education Commission Chooses Focus Areas for Future Consideration

Rockville’s Education Commission has developed three focus areas for its future work, the committee told the Mayor and Council in October as it presented its annual report, which covers the committee’s activities since it was created by the Mayor and Council in April 2022.

Those areas are: keeping Rockville schools safe and secure; improving teacher retention and recruitment; and strengthening partnerships between businesses and schools. The focus areas were drawn from information gathering and hearing the community’s priorities.

The Education Commission is comprised of 11 members made up of private, home-school and public-school parents, educational professionals and a youth representative.

The commission’s mission is to, “Maintain and grow collaborative relationships among the county’s board of education, Montgomery County Public Schools, private and nonprofit schools, Montgomery College, parent-teacher associations, private and nonprofit school boards, home-school communities, and providers of early childcare and education programs in the Rockville community.”
