Welcome, Board Members
from Leslie Wilson, Asst. State Superintendent
This page was developed to provide you information to support your efforts in improving student achievement in your district or across the state. Let us know what you find useful and what changes you would like to see. You may want to bookmark this page as your mdk12.org homepage.
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
Why do we need high school assessments?
Board News January features Maryland's ever improving graduation rate, and a discussion on how to make it even better. Also, the state formulates plans to apply for an extension of the ESEA waiver, and make adjustments for snow days.
