WXY to Release Interactive Boundary Tool

The second phase of the Districtwide Boundary Analysis will focus on engagement with an Interactive Boundary Explorer tool, which will provide MCPS stakeholders a deeper look and better understanding of school boundaries. The tool has been developed by WXY Studios (WXY) as part of its ongoing work with the district to provide a comprehensive assessment of MCPS boundaries by analyzing various data points. The interactive tool will be shared in two public webinars—on Tuesday, Oct. 20 and Thursday, Oct. 22. Both webinars will be held from 7–8:30 p.m.

MCPS To Provide Virtual-only Learning for First Semester

MCPS has determined that the safest choice for the school district is to remain in a virtual-only instructional model for the first semester and for the foreseeable future. This plan will be reassessed in November and will change only if state and local health officials determine conditions in our county allow for students and staff to return safely beginning in the second semester.
