Student Welfare and Compliance monitors the implementation of policies and procedures (specifically, Board of Education Policy ACA, Nondiscrimination, Equity, and Cultural Proficiency), reflecting the district's commitment to support student and staff success, regardless of actual or perceived personal characteristics. The mission of Student Welfare and Compliance is to serve as a resource for schools and central offices in providing institutional accountability and awareness of our MCPS expectations, as well as having the necessary information to create and maintain a lawful, positive, safe, and healthy climate and culture. We want to ensure all adults and students are able to thrive and do their best work. The unit works collaboratively with schools, the Office of the General Counsel and other MCPS offices, and community agencies to ensure consistency and coherence with implementation of policies, regulations, and guidelines, such as issues related to human relations; bullying, harassment (including Title IX sexual harassment), and intimidation; recognizing and reporting child abuse and neglect; incidents of hate-bias, hazing, and student gender identity.
Student Welfare and Compliance provides training for staff. Select a topic to find resources, Board policies, MCPS regulations, and MCPS forms.
