Education Matters: Montgomery County School (April 2024)

Thank You, Montgomery

Montgomery Public Schools is thankful for the positive results of the March 5th election. The residents of Montgomery County came together and voted to renew the 3.5 county tax millage that supports MPS and Pike Road Schools (PRS). This is a true testament to our communities working together to support the children of Montgomery County. This successful renewal will allow both school districts to continue to expand resources to support 21st-century learning, social and emotional resources, hiring of staff, supporting transportation needs, growing extracurricular activities, and much more.

MPS is especially thankful for our parents who entrust our schools to nurture and guide their students to success. Parents, your dedication is commendable, and we encourage you to stay engaged with your student’s school to ensure you are a part of our journey as we work to prepare our students for the future. MPS is committed to developing and implementing the best resources for our schools. Remember, parental support is always welcomed and needed.

Equally deserving of praise are our community partners. Many of our elected officials, business leaders, religious leaders, industry organizations, and community leaders, all pledged their support to ensure this renewal passed. They understood that in order for our communities to grow and flourish, our school systems must be equipped with resources to support our students. The collaboration between our community supporters and our schools is extremely valuable and we’re grateful to call these entities partners in education.

As we express our gratitude for this renewal, we understand that our work is far from over. We’re dedicated to remaining steadfast in our commitment to building learning environments conducive to supporting 21st-century learning strategies. I often share with our community that we’re preparing our students for careers and paths that do not yet exist. Technology is ever-evolving, and it’s our responsibility to inspire our students to be ready for what the future holds.

Again, Montgomery, we offer our deepest gratitude to all of you. We’re looking forward to our community collaboration and the positive impact it will have on our students.

Melvin J. Brown, Ed.D., is the superintendent of Montgomery Public Schools and previously served as superintendent of Reynoldsburg City Schools in Ohio. He has 24 years of school administrative experience.
