WE BELIEVE...Race and culture exert a powerful influence on policies, practices and interactions in every aspect of Montgomery County Public Schools and can lead to the racial predictability of achievement and success.

  • This racial predictability is not simply a factor of individual beliefs and actions, but is institutionalized.
  • To eliminate this racial predictability we must remove institutional barriers and demonstrate culturally proficient policies, practices and behaviors.

Our Mission

We will advance racial justice and cultural proficiency by interrupting systems of bias (implicit and explicit), oppression, and inequity in our policies, practices and procedures by challenging every MCPS employee to be courageous, persistent and effective in confronting and resolving racial and cultural issues that impact everyone but disproportionately impact the academic and social emotional success of students of color.
