Dear Gibbs Parents,


Boundary studies are often a difficult topic for all communities. Throughout this process we will advocate for our Gibbs students while maintaining the integrity of our community. We are in the process of gathering the thoughts, concerns and desires of the Gibbs community members.  


Please note that there are TWO surveys we are asking you to fill out. 


MCPS Survey

This one is hosted by MCPS which is NECESSARY for us to all do as they will analyze our feedback for the April meeting. MCPS survey needs to be completed by March 31st. Please click on the link to fill out the survey at the link below:

Gibbs Community Survey

The information we collect from the survey will help us determine whether there is a majority position that our community is favoring among the options presented in the boundary study which would then allow for a Gibbs PTA Position paper that would be reflective of the majority of our community. Parents, your participation in this survey is very important. Please complete the survey as soon as possible by clicking on the link below:

A position paper, which actually any individual parent or family can write on their own behalf, is an opportunity to voice your specific concerns and opinions about the boundary study directly to the BoE and the Superintendent. It's also an opportunity to inquire about educational resources and programs and or accommodations that MCPS could offer to the schools involved. 


We are all part of the MCPS system and want all of the schools in our county to thrive. Let's bring forth solutions and work together. Please complete this survey as soon as possible and we ask that you submit only one response per family.


Additional information about the middle and high school boundary study can be found at this link:

The next set of MCPS boundary study meetings will be held on these dates. MCPS will present their collected feedback from their (MCPS) survey and share additional options, if any.

Monday, April 8th from 7-9pm at Northwest HS Auditorium

Tuesday, April 9th from 7-9pm at Seneca Valley HS Auditorium

Thursday, April 11th from 7-9pm at Clarksburg HS Auditorium ***


Thank you for providing your feedback to MCPS as well as this Gibbs community survey! It is through your dedication and continued involvement in your child's education that is vital for their success!
