Technology Resources

MCPS leverages a number of technology services and tools to support the core mission of the district: ensuring every student has the academic, creative problem solving, and social emotional skills to be successful in college and career. For our community, these tools serve as mechanisms to enhance teaching, learning, assessment, and system operations. We often partner with businesses and organizations to provide these services, core and supplemental, that may require the use of personally identifiable and/or confidential student information. When sensitive student information is necessary to provide the service, we will enter into a data sharing agreement with the vendor articulating the terms of use as part of the procurement and contracting process. MCPS continues to actively work to enhance our relationships with technology service providers.

If you discover a new online digital tool not listed below in the Online Digital Tools Database, please go to the Guideline, Safeguards, and Vetting page to learn more about the vetting process.
