Parents and Guardians:
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 Walter Johnson High School 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:

• Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
