Welcome to the Somerset County Public School System webpage! It
is a great honor to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.
Over the last year 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 summer breeze has arrived we find ourselves making
summer plans for professional development, finalizing summer
cleaning schedules and making preparations for the 2014-2015
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 adjusted our budget to meet the
financial contributions made by our local, state and federal
legislators. Academically we have redefined the course levels,
finalized dual enrollment procedures and have begun the
scheduling process to make sure each of our students have a
school schedule that is rigorous and meets their needs. We want
all students to be college and career ready. By expecting
continuous improvement we will reach our goals!
In the coming months we will be publicizing 2014 - 2015 school
dates and other important dates that will cover the fall and
start of the school year. We are continuing our work in Common
Core and also are looking forward to our needs as the new PARCC
Assessments are broadly practiced by our students. Please take
advantage of our website and check occasionally so you can 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 wish all of our staff, students and parents a safe and
productive summer season!
