Days of Commemoration
In recognition of Montgomery County’s religious, ethnic and cultural diversity and in respect for the diversity of its own workforce, on March 28, 2006, the County Council passed legislation ( Bill No. 1-06: Special Days of Commemoration ) to designate certain days of commemoration relating to the religious, ethnic and cultural heritage of County residents. On July 7, 2006, the County Executive signed the legislation into law. For regulations governing leave and alternate work schedules for religious observance, County government employees can refer to the Personnel Regulations located on HR Resource Library. Also see Office of Community Outreach August 11, 2006 memorandum to County government employees.
Respecting Religious Diversity in Montgomery County Public Schools
Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is committed to promoting respect and appreciation for the religions, beliefs, and customs of our diverse student population. MCPS believes that multiculturalism is one of our greatest strengths and should enrich our community as we learn together in our schools. Respect is a core value of MCPS and, therefore, fostering a culture where all families feel respected is of utmost importance.
