Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS[1]) is a school district that serves Montgomery County, Maryland. It is the largest school district in Maryland. As of the 2009–2010 school year, the district had 11,500 full-time equivalent (FTE) teachers serving 141,777 students at 200 schools.[2]

In 2010, MCPS was awarded a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The superintendent is Dr. Joshua P. Starr, who was hired in July 2011 after former Superintendent Dr. Jerry Weast retired.[3]

The county spends $2 billion on public schools, about half of the county's budget.[4]

The Board of Education has a student member of the board (or SMOB) that has full voting rights, except in certain cases.

"With the exceptions of boundary changes, capital and operating budgets, collective bargaining, negative personnel matters, and school closings, the SMOB has a vote equal to those of the seven adult Board members. The SMOB has a vote on issues like administrative appointments (including hiring of the Superintendent of Schools), policy, and the Board of Education's legislative platform."

The SMOB elections are held every academic year. Only high school students vote in the primary election, but all middle school and high school students vote in the actual election, and SMOB is considered an official elected office.
