One of County Executive Jan Gardner’s key priorities is to keep the promise of public education. Education is the path to opportunity.
Exceptional schools lifts our students, their families, and ensure our long-term economic prosperity by providing a well-trained pipeline of workers. Keeping the promise of public education means providing the opportunity for all our students to be successful and achieve their full potential.
We can all be proud of the innovation in public education in Frederick County.
Great education also depends on having the best teachers and other school support staff. This is critically important to student outcomes.
