Baltimore County School District

Realizing the Vision

The Baltimore County Public Schools are dedicated to providing a quality, comprehensive educational program designed to address the needs of a diverse student population. Building on current successes, the system's Blueprint for Progress -- its road map for the future -- outlines the vision, mission, belief statements, goals, strategies, and indicators of progress that will lead to increased achievement by all students.

The Blueprint for Progress provides clear direction for everyone involved in education in Baltimore County, including teachers, administrators, support staff, parents, and the community. The foundation of the Blueprint for Progress is quality instruction. Implementing this blueprint is essential. Today's children are the only future the human race has. We must teach them well. They deserve the best.

Indicators of Student Achievement Progress

The Baltimore County Public Schools continue to strive to increase the quality of the educational opportunities offered to students. Systemic reform efforts are focused on continuing to increase student achievement by raising standards, improving instruction, challenging low expectations, and enhancing parental and community support. These efforts stem from our commitment to excellence and equity -- the belief that all students deserve to receive a quality education. State or county standards have been established for each Indicator of Progress.

All indicators require continuous improvement over time by all ethnic, gender, and socio-economic groups to reduce achievement gaps. By 2005, Baltimore County Public Schools will meet or exceed these state or county standards. Current performance levels suggest that some indicators will be met well before 2005; others will take longer to be met. School-based needs assessments may lead to the identification of additional indicators at specific schools.

  • All schools will have annual student attendance rates of at least 94% (state standard).
  • All students will score at or above grade level in reading and mathematics, based on the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills/5 (county standard).
  • All schools will have a score of at least 100 on the school performance index, which incorporates all subjects measured on the Maryland School Performance Assessment Program -- MSPAP (state standard).
  • 70% of participating special education students will meet or exceed state standards for the Independence Mastery Assessment Program -- IMAP (state standard).
  • All students will meet system-defined grade level expectations prior to promotion (county standard).
  • All students will pass the three Maryland Functional Tests by the end of grade 8 (county standard).
  • All high schools will have annual dropout rates of less than 3% (state standard).
