Schools Technical Advisory Team (STAT)


Every four years, the Montgomery County Planning Department reviews the Subdivision Staging Policy (SSP) to ensure that the tools used for evaluating the impact of development on essential public facilities reflect the latest growth patterns of the County. As part of the effort regarding public school facilities for the 2020 SSP Update, Montgomery Planning has established a Schools Technical Advisory Team (STAT). STAT members serve as a link between their communities and planning staff. They assist staff in the SSP update process by applying their community knowledge and technical expertise to share diverse perspectives and relevant information.

In addition to members of the general public, the STAT includes representatives from the following groups:

  • CASA de Maryland
  • Coalition for Smarter Growth
  • Housing Opportunities Commission
  • Montgomery County Civic Federation
  • Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation
  • Montgomery County Public Schools
  • Montgomery County Regional SGA
  • Montgomery County Council of PTAs
  • Maryland Building Industry Association
  • City of Gaithersburg
  • City of Rockville
  • City of Takoma Park
