BETHESDA – Executive members of a local parent teacher student association voted unanimously to request clarification of school board policy for Montgomery County Public Schools and to support the school principal’s upholding of a school rule about behavior at the prom.

Members of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Parent Teacher and Student Association said they were concerned about student safety and about what they perceived to be inconsistent responses to rules of individual high schools after MCPS Interim Superintendent Larry Bowers overruled Principal Donna Redmond Jones’ recent decision to forbid six students from attending graduation.

“Please clarify your policy and how it is implemented, in order to uphold the authority of Principals and ensure impartiality and consistency throughout all schools in the County,” members said in the petition to Bowers.
