School officials are planning a series of information-sharing meetings on the reopening of Woodward High School in Rockville.  

Superintendent Jack Smith has called for a study group to discuss using the high school to alleviate overcrowding at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda and other area high schools. The group will also look at addressing capacity issues by moving alternative and vocational programs to nontraditional spaces, like commercial buildings, according to a Montgomery County Public Schools explanation.

Parents can learn more about the study group, which will meet over the spring, at meetings scheduled for Feb. 23 and March 2 at Tilden Middle School in Rockville. The sessions will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria.

The study group will be comprised of cluster coordinators, high school representatives, students, MCPS central office staff and advocates.

The group will offer guidance as the superintendent crafts recommendations for the Board of Education.
