Summer is a Great Time for Student Service Learning

Summer is a great time for students to become involved in service activities and earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours. Students can participate in a range of activities—working at a soup kitchen, cleaning up a local park, or collecting items for a clothing or food drive. All MCPS students need 75 SSL hours to graduate from high school. Students can begin collecting those hours the summer before 6th grade.

Support the 2016 Give BACKpacks Campaign

MCPS needs your help to raise funds to purchase backpacks filled with school supplies for students in need. A $10 donation will provide a student in need with a new backpack, filled with school supplies. Last year, thanks to the generous donations of MCPS parents, staff, and community members, the district was able to provide more than 19,000 backpacks to students. We’re hoping to serve even more students this year. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to Give BACKpacks!

Immunization Requirements for the 2016-2017 School Year

All incoming seventh grade students, as well as eighth and ninth grade students that are new to the state, must receive vaccination against tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) and meningococcal meningitis (MCV4) prior to the start of the 2016-2017 school year. Students not in compliance with Maryland vaccination requirements will be excluded from attending school until they provide documentation of the required Tdap and MCV4 immunizations.

Engagement

Engagement

Find out how MCPS's engagement strategy is transforming communities, individuals and institutions.

The Challenge

To empower all students, parents and community leaders to become active in shaping the student learning experience, and to engage institutions in every sector of the community to support student learning.

How Engagement Works

Community engagement increases equity and improves public education by building capacity and power in communities. It works to address the issues that families in communities face so that students can take full advantage of their educational experience.

Vision

  • Enhancing culturally-competent, historically-aware and economically empowering family engagement at the local school level
  • Engaging institutions in every sector (private industry, non-profit, faith communities and local government) in the critical work of supporting the education of our students
  • Creating and leveraging within MCPS an organizational structure and culture that supports OCEP’s vision
  • Identifying specific culturally and historically-informed strategies to leverage community engagement to help close the achievement gap
