Welcome, Board Members
Lillian M. Lowery, Ed.D., Maryland State Superintendent of Schools
"Our teachers, our administrators, our parents, and our students are working together to move schools forward. Education is the cornerstone to Maryland's future, and I believe we're building a strong foundation for decades to come."
Board Members share their perspective on how MDK12.org has assisted their work.
“MDK12.org allows us to help our teachers look at trends in data, especially critical subgroups. We can monitor our targets as AMO increases each year. The questions/processes provided to guide us through analysis of data to impact instruction are extremely valuable.”
—McCutcheon, Laura and Hankins, Laura, Gaithersburg Elementary, MD
“This site has been instrumental! We will continue to surge forward as a professional learning community as long as we have the mdk12.org in our side pocket!”
—Lance Dempsey, Principal, Shady Grove Middle School
