St. Mary's County Schools is conducting an Educational Equity Needs Assessment through Insight Education Group from Encino, California.  The intent of the survey is to gather input directly from families of our students about their experiences and perspectives. These survey groups will span all geographic areas and school zones in the county and will provide input opportunities for elementary, middle, and high school families. 

In addition, focus groups will be conducted with stakeholder groups to include: Students (Middle & High School); Family/Caregivers; Teachers/Staff-School Based; Staff- Non-School Based; School Leadership/Administration-School Based; District Leadership/Central Office - Non-School Based; and Community Partners. Every effort is being made to secure a cross-section of stakeholder representation to ensure that all voices are heard. 

Take the Survey

St. Mary’s County Public Schools is committed to addressing equity in our schools and specifically listening to the valuable insights of our families and stakeholders.
