Private Religious Schools

Division of Business, Fiscal, and information Systems (DBFIS) supervises the implementation of Child Find procedures for students whose parents choose to enroll their children in private or religious schools. In addition, DBFIS oversees the countywide summer assessment process to support schools in conducting IEP procedures within mandated timelines for students who attend private and/or religious schools and seek special education screening or services in Montgomery County Public Schools.

  • Provide summer assessment for special education screening
