Procedures for Those Not Granted Exceptions to Policy: 

For those individuals who have children who attend school within the Garrett County Public School System, but who are not granted exceptions to this policy, school staff will make every effort to hold parent conferences, IEP meetings and administrative meetings outside of the hours in which students are present in the building. When such arrangements are not feasible, parents/guardians who are not permitted on school property may still participate in the educational process, via conference call.
