Dear Parents and Guardians:


The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has released a new accountability report card for every school in the state of Maryland. The Maryland Report Card for Chevy Chase Elementary can be found at this link:


The Maryland Report Card is designed to measure school success in several ways, including state test results in English Language Arts and math; postsecondary readiness; progress of English learners in achieving English language proficiency; graduation rate; and students with access to and earning credit for a well-rounded curriculum

Below are a few resources to help you understand the Maryland Report Card:


As Superintendent of Schools Jack Smith noted in his message to the community on November 30, while the Maryland Report Card does provide important information about our schools, it only provides a limited view into the progress of our more than 163,000 students.


To better understand how our schools are serving all of our students, MCPS has developed an Equity Accountability Model that provides a more detailed and focused report of school success. The Equity Accountability Model uses multiple and frequent measures of students’ progress to determine if a school is meeting the needs of ALL students with a special emphasis on reducing and eliminating disparities in student achievement. Data for the MCPS Equity Accountability Model will be published in January.


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have additional questions.
