Welcome to the Somerset County Public School System webpage! It
is a great honor to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.
Over the last nine months I have enjoyed working with staff,
parents, school groups and community organizations as we strive
to make Somerset County Public Schools the top performing school
system in the state of Maryland.
It seems just like yesterday we started the new school year.
Now, as the warm air approaches we are working on the school
system’s budget, planning summer staff development and talking
about the 2014 – 2015 school year.
As a system we remain committed to providing students with an
educational program that meets their individual needs while at
the same time challenging and stretching their limits
intellectually. We have recently completed agreements that will
allow students to expand their academic programs by being
involved in our Dual Enrollment Program. Further we are looking
at our course description handbook and the length of classes. We
want all students to be college and career ready and by
expecting continuous improvement we will reach our goals!
In the coming months we will be presenting the proposed calendar
and school system budget. We have compiled the online budget
survey results and are in the process of creating a budget that
will address current and future needs of our students. We have
public input meetings scheduled at WAHS (2/19 at 6:30) and CAHS
(2/24 at 6:30). Please take advantage of the opportunity to come
and hear about the exciting plans for the upcoming year.
Our goal continues to remain the same and we are focused on
providing the best education for the students of our
communities! “Success Nothing Less” is alive and well in
I look forward to seeing everyone in school or out in the
community. Best wishes for a safe conclusion to winter and a
bright early Spring.
