Gaithersburg Mayor Sidney Katz and City Manager Angel Jones met with new Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Superintendent Joshua Starr on Sept. 15 for about 90 minutes to discuss local school issues.
According to Katz, the meeting began at City Hall and included a driving tour of some of the city’s neighborhoods. City officials showed Starr the developing Crown Farm site and pointed out the future 34-acre future high school site in Gaithersburg. Katz said they also drove by Rachel Carson Elementary School on their way to lunch at O’Donnell’s Seafood restaurant.
“He knows Gaithersburg is one of his best partners,” said Katz.
According to Katz, Starr visited Gaithersburg Elementary School earlier in the day and the superintendent is aware of the ongoing modernization of Gaithersburg High School.
Katz said he wished they would have had time to visit Brown Station and Diamond elementary schools but he said there would be another time.
