New Schools Call Center

Need to know how to enroll your child in school or when school starts in August? Beginning next Thursday, parents can make one call to the Montgomery County public school system's new call center to find out about school operations, tests, reports and other information.

The call center -- 301-309-MCPS (6277) -- will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays except for holidays and other days when the MCPS administrative offices are closed. Center workers will provide answers to questions in English and Spanish. Callers speaking other languages will be referred to the Cambodian, Korean, Vietnamese, French and Chinese language lines in the MCPS Division of ESOL/Bilingual Programs. The call center is also accessible to people with disabilities through a relay system.
