Community Relations

The Office of Community and Government Relations seeks to strengthen relationships with public officials and community stakeholders, increase the visibility of the organization, and forge partnerships to advance the mission of MCIU. We also work to support the school districts of Montgomery County in a variety of ways.

If you have questions about the services of the IU, or about public education overall, we are happy to try and assist you. One of our areas of emphasis is education legislation, and we are always available to explain the potential impact of proposed legislation.

Our office supports the MCIU Education Foundation, which provides camp and post-secondary scholarships to low income students with special needs, as well as support to other education initiatives in Montgomery County.
