This Strategic Plan, FY 2018 represents our continued commitment to the five core values that define what it means to be an exceptional school system: Learning, Relationships, Respect, Excellence and Equity. Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is committed to educating our students so that academic success is not predictable by race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, language proficiency or disability. We will continue to strive until all gaps have been eliminated for all groups. Our students will graduate with deep academic knowledge and become prepared for tomorrow’s complex world and workplace.
This plan outlines expectations for students and staff and lays out a clear path to meet our objectives and goals. It also requires MCPS staff to assess student performance by addressing key essential questions:
MCPS will continue to organize and optimize resources that address the essential questions and supports the Board’s core values to ensure that every student is well prepared for success. It is this focus that has made MCPS a shining example across the country and will allow us to continue to serve our students at the highest level for generations to come.
We inspire learning by providing the greatest public education to each and every student.
Every student will have the academic, creative problem solving, and social emotional skills to be successful in college and career.
Prepare all students to thrive in their future.
Learning, Relationships, Respect, Excellence and Equity.
To provide a strong instructional program at all levels that supports the "whole child".
