Maryland State Department of Education School Report Card

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

Our school recently received its School Report Card from the Maryland State Department of Education. The Report Card summarizes how our school performed on the Maryland accountability system.

The results reflect school performance in multiple areas, including academic achievement, academic progress (for elementary and middle schools), school quality and student success measures, as well as graduation rates and college and career readiness (for high schools). Additional data in this year’s School Report Card includes a School Quality and Student Success indicator, based on the results of a survey of students and educators taken last spring, as well as an indicator of whether a school has improved from the previous year. For elementary and middle schools, the Academic Progress indicator now includes student performance on state science tests.

These results are an important snapshot of how a school is performing. They show areas in which we are doing well, and illuminate those in which we need to improve. The information provided on the Maryland School Report Card is displayed in a way that makes it easy to understand each school’s performance.

You can find the School Report Card, and much more information, at the Maryland Report Card website:

https://reportcard.msde.maryland.gov/Graphs/#/ReportCards/ReportCardSchool/1/H/1/06/0716/

 

While the final score on the Report Card does not tell the whole story, we hope the Maryland School Report Card will add to our discussion about how to constantly improve our school. The data on the Report Card is both informative and empowering, and will help our School Improvement Team to ask questions, find answers, make decisions, and act.

We hope you will view the Maryland School Report Card as a tool to become more involved in our school. Help us raise our schools’ scores by taking a community approach to the mission of educating children. Together we can strive for excellence in all areas of education.

 

Sincerely,

  

Bryan K. Wetzel

Principal, Gateway/Crossroads

Even better, dental care is usually at no cost to you. All insurance is accepted including Medicaid and Maryland Healthy Smiles. A low cost self-pay option is available for those without insurance.

 

Convenient and comfortable

 

Our in-school dental program saves you time and provides a safe and comfortable place for your child to receive gentle dental care from licensed local professionals. Dental care includes a complete dental exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants when necessary, and in some cases, restorative care such as fillings.

 

Dental care for a healthy life

 

Children who see a dentist regularly may have fewer health issues like:

No, this isn't actually my picture. I just haven't gotten around to updating this section. It's good to know that someone is reading every last word though. Thanks!
