Wheaton is part of the Downcounty Consortium (DCC). Students who reside within the DCC boundaries participate in the Choice process. Students and parents rank their preferred high schools for school assignment and are assigned to one of 5 high schools via lottery: Montgomery Blair, Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, Northwood or Wheaton. The DCC website describes programs at the five schools and the Choice process.
 
Wheaton offers 4 academies. Two are Project Lead the Way academies: Engineering, and Biosciences and Health Professions. The Institute for Global and Cultural Studies Academy is liberal arts and humanities based and encompasses digital art and music. The Academy of Information Technology is sponsored by the National Academy Foundation. The academies prepare students for postsecondary education and career choices and extend the classroom to the community through job shadowing, speakers, internships, and credit-bearing college courses.

School Audits

School Audits

Independent Activity Funds (IAF) are established to promote the general welfare, education, and morale of students, as well as to finance the recognized extracurricular activities of the student body. Audits are conducted regularly to ensure that each IAF is operated in compliance with MCPS policies, regulations, and procedures, and to review processes for continuous improvement. An IAF audit does not review every transaction or school activity but seeks to provide reasonable assurance that there is compliance with MCPS policies, regulations, and procedures, and that any significant errors or omissions in the financial records are detected.

IAF audits completed after January 1, 2012 are published on this website. To view reports completed prior to January 1, 2012, please contact the individual school or send an email to pio@mcpsmd.org.

Payroll audits are conducted to evaluate compliance with MCPS policies, regulations, and procedures as well as to assess the effectiveness of existing controls for approval of employee absences and the accuracy of time and attendance reporting. A payroll audit does not review every transaction but seeks to provide reasonable assurance that there is compliance with MCPS policies, regulations, and procedures, and that any significant errors or omissions in the payroll records are detected.
