Education

Our children are our greatest resource and our most important sacred trust. Promoting their safety, education, and development from the very early years through the challenges of adolescence requires an extraordinary effort by our entire community. In addition to maintaining Montgomery County’s tradition of educational excellence, the Leggett Administration is committed to broadening the range of out-of-school opportunities and services that can help our children, especially those from our least affluent families, realize their full potential and prepare for a lifetime of learning.
