External Review of the Supervision of Athletics and Extracurricular Activities


The external review was released Monday October 7, 2019 in a letter to the full MCPS community. Following an assault at Damascus High School in October of 2018, MCPS took immediate steps to enhance the safety and security of students participating in athletic and extracurricular programs and commissioned an external review. The goals of the external review included identifying measures that MCPS can take to improve school culture, as well as existing policies, procedures, and practices and to ensure that high schools across the District provide a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for students.
