Statement from the Board of Education
This Strategic Plan 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.
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.
Our 4 Support Areas that Improve Teaching & Learning & Provide a Strong Academic Program
Outcomes and Program Indicators
The mission of Montgomery County Public Schools is to ensure every student has the academic, creative problem solving, and social emotional skills to be successful in college, career and community, regardless of background.
While many of our students achieve at the highest levels, not all have had the opportunities, support and resources needed to meet their full potential. MCPS is committed to addressing disparities in student outcomes by closing gaps in opportunity and achievement for all students, in all classrooms, in all of our schools. MCPS has identified the following focus areas of student, school and system performance to monitor:
