Response Notes

Responsive to this request, HCPSS does not have records of State aid received by parochial schools in Howard County. The programs mentioned, such as BOOST and the nonpublic schools textbook and technology programs, are grant programs outside the purview of HCPSS. As such, the most likely resource for accountings of State funds would be the Maryland State Department of Education who administers such programs: http://marylandpublicschools.org/pages/boost/index.aspx.
