Task Forces

Meeting Room

What are Task Forces?

MCR-SGA has created a new initiative to engage students across the county through our new Task Forces. These groups will construct and implement actions plans for students to effectively represent their voices to county officials on pressing issues in MCPS.

Environment and Sustainability

The Environmental and Sustainability Task Force is a new initiative that is part of the Special Issues Department of MCR-SGA. Its 18 members are dedicated to raising awareness of various aspects of our environment and mobilizing MoCo students to advocate for environmental issues.

This task force has organized a Climate Forum of 3 esteemed speakers and 100+ RSVPs and is currently working to testify for improved maintenance of school water stations, distribute reusable masks to those in need, and create a series of informational videos /interviews about the Chesapeake Bay.

Gender Equity and Sexual Misconduct

The Gender Equity and Sexual Misconduct Task Force aims to address any discrimination and harm on the basis of sexual reasons or gender.

MCR hopes to reveal an often hidden issue that is not looked into thoroughly. This task force will hold monthly in-person meetings and online meetings to prepare resources and events to raise awareness and present solutions.

Equitable Education

There have been many situations where students don't have access to reasonable academic resources. We feel that it is our responsibility to work with the MCPS Board of Education and County Council to make education accessible and sufficient enough for a decent education.

 

This task force will hold monthly in-person meetings and online meetings to conduct research, raise student awareness, and hold advocacy events with students and officials.

Mental Health and Wellness

While MCR's advocacy has helped slow down the surge of tragic suicides in Montgomery County, there is still more work to be done. We plan to continue advocating for the expansion of county and school wide mental health programs and the proper staffing of school counselors and psychologists to help students in times of need.

 

MCR also recognizes the recent vaping crisis and has been working with county officials to take actions to slow down and ultimately stop this crisis. This task force will also advocate for resolutions regarding school nutrition, physical education, and other health-related items. This task force will hold monthly in-person meetings to conduct research, raise student awareness, and hold advocacy events with students and officials.

Opioid and Drug Crisis


With the rise of student overdoses, MCR hopes to address a hidden issue that has plagued the entirety of Montgomery County.
 
MCR feels that as the countywide student governing body, it is our responsibility to represent the student's voice. This task force will hold monthly in-person meetings to conduct research, raise student awareness, and hold advocacy events with students and officials.
