ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- The Montgomery County Board of Education voted Tuesday to close school for the holiday of Eid al-Adha.

In 2016, Montgomery County schools will be closed on Sept. 12th. It will be professional day for staff in the proposed 2016-2017 school year calendar.

"MCPS is an extremely diverse county and our students and staff celebrate a wide variety of religious and cultural holidays," said Patricia B. O'Neill, president of the Board. "I hope that today's decision highlights the Board's ongoing commitment to respect this diversity and work with the community to ensure that there is a fair and equitable process for determining when it is appropriate for MCPS to close schools.
