Montgomery County Waits For Decision On Fines

The Maryland Board of Education has yet to decide whether it will fine Montgomery County for not adequately fulfilling a school funding formula.

The county fell short in funding its "maintenance of effort" requirement, which essentially makes each county in Maryland spend more each year per student. County council president Phil Andrews believes it would be unfair if the state went through with the fines, which could top 60-million dollars.

The county asked the state for a waiver for the funding requirement last year, citing the economy as the reason it could not fulfill it. It was denied.
