Excel Beyond the Bell Overview
The Collaboration Council leads Excel Beyond the Bell (EBB), the County’s initiative to create a local out-of-school time (OST) system that will increase the number of quality programs promoting positive youth development, especially in our most vulnerable communities, that will inspire children and youth to achieve their full potential (see www.excelbeyondthebell.org for more information).

Excel Beyond the Bell Middle School Program
As part of this initiative, a three-year out-of-school time pilot was created in partnership with the Montgomery County Recreation Department (MCRD) and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). In its first year, EBB programs were located at Argyle Middle School in Wheaton, Roberto Clemente in Germantown, and A. Marion Loiederman in Silver Spring. EBB school sites have expanded to include Francis Scott Key in Silver Spring, Forest Oak in Gaithersburg, Montgomery Village in Montgomery Village, Neelsville in Germantown, and Col. E. Brooke Lee in Silver Spring.

The Collaboration Council seeks Letters of Interest from organizations and qualified individuals to serve as a pre-approved pool of potential out-of-school time vendors to serve middle school students at a particular school or schools within the Excel Beyond the Bell Middle School out-of-school time system. Vendors are strongly encouraged to consider operating at more than one location.
