Partners for Success is a partnership between the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) and the St. Mary's County Public Schools (SMCPS) to provide services designed to inform families and build working relationships among families, schools, and the community. A parent/educator team staffs the center. This team assists families, students and educators by providing support, information and resources on disabilities and community services.
