What MCPS 'forgot' to tell the public

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) officials gave two options to show that building the Kendale replacement school would save tax dollars, but failed to show the third, most cost-effective option, according to the Washington Examiner.

IG Thomas Dagley summarized the first two and revealed the third:

- "Modernize the existing facility: $16.75 million"

- "Build a new school on Kendale Road: $14.02 million"

- "Demolishing the school and rebuilding on the same site (undisclosed): $13.87 million."
