Leventhal gives MCPS time to prove community support

The Inspector General found that MCPS had "misrepresented . . . community sentiment" in proposing the Kendale school, according to the Almanac.

County Council President George Leventhal gave MCPS some more chances to prove itself.

"If there is strong community support for the Kendale site, I would be very interested to hear that," the Almanac reports Leventhal as saying at a March 2 meeting.

"We'll certainly have two opportunities in the month of March to see if community witnesses do come forward in support of the Kendale site," Leventhal added.
