2017-2021 Year Strategic Plan
Goal 1: Optimize academic performance and student success
MCPS provides an education that prepares students for the local, national, and global economy. It focuses on ensuring all students are learning and achievement gaps are being eliminated. The curriculum and instruction programming provides students with a STEM-based approach to learning from kindergarten through 12th grade.
To accomplish this goal, MCPS centers all decisions on students’ needs and learning to ensure children are provided with opportunities to excel and are prepared for their adult lives by accomplishing the following objectives:
- Increase academic achievement for all students
- Ensure a safe and respectful learning environment
- Expand and support student-centered learning environments
- Graduate college and/or career-ready students
MCPS monitors and evaluates its progress toward each strategic goal by using key performance indicators (KPI) that are monitored through a balanced scorecard. Below is the balanced scorecard for this goal. Data from the 2017-2018 school year will establish baseline values that will be used to evaluate the progress of each goal.
Please note the navigation pop-up bar that appears in the lower right-hand corner. If this goal has more than one slide to view, the slide bar menu will enable a right arrow that you will need to click to view the remaining slides.
