Current Before and After School Childcare Bid

MCPS/CUPF Joint Statement

The Before and After School Childcare re-bid process administered by the Interagency Coordinating Board (ICB) and Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF) on behalf of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) for placement during the 2019-20 school year has been temporarily suspended. This temporary suspension applies to the schools scheduled to be re-bid during the 2018-19 school year.  All re-bids are temporarily suspended until Executive Regulation 6-17AM is extended, revised or replaced.  Executive Regulation 6-17AM, which governs the re-bid process is scheduled to sunset on July 31, 2019.
The decision to temporarily suspend was mutually reached by MCPS and CUPF based on various factors.  Among those factors are the fact that recent litigation challenged the application of the Executive Regulation, the short time period before the July 31, 2019 sunset date combined with recent elections that established a new County Executive, County Council and Board of Education.    Moving forward the County Executive, County Council and MCPS; as well as other interested parties will be working together to develop revisions to the re-bid process and reviewing the Regulation as a whole to advance the mission of high quality before and after care in Montgomery County.  During this process child care providers, parents of school age children and other experts on school age child care will be consulted.
Updates and information will be posted on the Montgomery County Community Use of Public Facilities Childcare page found at:
