What Counts

What Our Community Tells Us about Our Public Schools

The Calvert County Board of Education believes that quality public schools are essential to a thriving community. As such, the Board welcomes and seeks broad community input regarding the delivery of a high quality, effective, and efficient school system. Citizen interest in and support of Calvert’s public schools are essential to their continued success. The Board provides a variety of avenues for citizens to regularly communicate with Board members individually as well as with the Board as a whole.

In the fall of 2010, the Board partnered with the Maryland Association of Boards of Education to conduct a community forum titled What Counts. On February 3, 2011, citizens discussed two questions:

  1. What do you value about your public schools?
  2. What factors contribute most to student success?

The 120 individuals – parents, students, community members, and leaders – shared individual thoughts as well as consensus ideas on what they value in Calvert County public schools.
