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 warm air has arrived we are finalizing the school
system’s budget, planning summer staff development and planning
for 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, graduation requirements,
program pathways and teaching strategies used in our classrooms.
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 publicizing summer school dates
and other important dates that will cover not only summer, but
the fall and start of the 2014 – 2015 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 the website and check
occasionally so you can hear about the exciting plans for the
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 spring and a successful summer
season is on the horizon!
