Adopt-a-Field (AAF) Information
The Montgomery County Public School’s (MCPS) Department of Facilities Management will potentially be entering into Adopt-a-Field (AAF) agreements at the sites indicated below:
- Briggs Chaney Middle School
- Brooke Grove Elementary School
- Rock Terrace School
- Tilden Center (current home of Hoover Middle School) ---- fields #2 and #5
Also, as a point of information, existing AAF agreements at Westover Elementary and Bethesda Elementary have been extended due to the scheduled/ongoing construction at these sites that has and will continue to impact field use.
The Parks Department has opted not to allocate any additional fields at this time for AAF programming.
Existing field users have expressed interest in entering into such an agreement with MCPS and the Parks Department. However, pursuant to guidelines developed jointly by MCPS, The Parks Department and the Office of Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF), which outlines a protocol for AAF programs, all field users are to be apprised of potential new AAF agreements and of any agreements that stand to be renewed, so that any interested entity might also submit an application to adopt fields.
