Welcome to Excel Beyond the Bell!
Our Excel Beyond the Bell Collaborative is a public-private partnership created by the Collaboration Council to inspire our youth to realize their full potential by offering safe, quality and accessible out-of-school time programs. Together with the Montgomery County Recreation Department and Montgomery County Public Schools, we offer the EBB Middle School Program at seven schools while striving to increase positive outcomes for youth across the county by creating and supporting a high-quality after school workforce.
“There are a lot of new things that I have learned, that you think you know as a parent, teacher, youth development practitioner, but you really just don’t, so I highly recommend to anyone to take this class!”
“EBB support was the best. The staff at the schools were all positive, ready to go and informed about our kids. I always felt that they had the kids’ best interests at heart and really wanted to provide them with a positive after school opportunity.”

Open Solicitation #2018-61: Identifying Out-of-School-Time Providers for Excel Beyond the Bell Middle Schools
Issue Date: Monday, August 6, 2018
Deadline for submitting questions: Wednesday, August 8, 2018
First Closing Date: Monday, August 13, 2018
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.
