Commitment to our Core Values
A Message from Superintendent Jack R.Smith Ph.D.
Dear MCPS Staff:
As we spend these last few days of summer preparing for the first day of school, let us pause for a moment and think about our roles in relation to the students and families we serve. Our students come to us from a vast range of economic circumstances; they come speaking languages from around the world; and they come from many different races and cultures. Now, more than ever, it is critical that we care for them and teach them in ways that communicate clearly that they are both safe and valued in our classrooms, this school system and our community. They must know that we, the staff of MCPS, are completely committed to their welfare and learning.
