MSDE Releases New School Report Card Website

The Maryland State Department of Education has released the new Maryland Report Card website, which provides performance data for every school in the state. 
Schools receive points based on their results on the performance indicators. Educators and parents will be able to view a brief summary of performance by looking at a school’s star rating, which tallies the school’s total earned points percent and issues a rating from 1 to 5 stars; the percentile rank, which is how a school performed in comparison to other schools in the category; and the total earned points percent, which is the total number of points earned by the school across the measures, divided by the total possible points.
For elementary and middle schools, the system includes academic achievement, academic progress, progress in achieving English language proficiency, and measures of school quality and student success. For high schools, the system includes academic achievement, graduation rate, progress in English language proficiency, readiness for postsecondary success, and measures of school quality and student success. 
Calvert County Public Schools has two schools that earned three stars, eleven that earned four stars, and nine that earned five stars. Statewide, 70% of schools earned three or four stars. 
Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “Calvert County can feel proud of all of its schools’ performance. This new report card covers a ton of good data and will shine light on some things that each school can improve upon.”
Maryland introduced the new School Report Cards so students, parents, educators and community members could better understand how their schools are performing, just as report cards help parents understand how their children are doing. The goal of the school report card is to provide a starting point and to offer easy-to-understand and concise information for each school. 
School Report Cards are available at www.MDReportCard.org. 
Dr. Karen Salmon, State Superintendent of Schools, said that the simplified format of the Maryland Report Card is a major improvement.
“Our goal is to improve every school throughout our state and prepare every student for a bright future,” said Dr. Karen Salmon, State Superintendent of Schools.  “The new Maryland Report Card will help parents, educators, policymakers and the general public gain a better understanding about how each school is doing based on our accountability measures. Together, we are working toward making sure our schools are the best they can be.”

U.S. Dangerous Inmate Who Escaped Prison In North Carolina May Now Be Hiding In Maryland

Dangerous inmate who escaped prison in North Carolina may now be hiding in Maryland: Police originally appeared on abcnews.go.com
 
A dangerous inmate who escaped from a North Carolina prison and allegedly stole a truck in Virginia may now be hiding out in Maryland, authorities warned.
 
Cul Priest Lamont Jones, 44, who is serving a sentence for first-degree burglary, was a minimum custody inmate when he escaped from North Carolina's Hoke Correctional Institution in October, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety said.
 
He was sentenced in 2014 and was scheduled to be released on Jan. 7, 2023, officials said.
 
In November, authorities in Virginia said they received multiple reports of burglaries at homes and businesses around Gasburg.
 
A truck was stolen from a Gasburg business and Jones was the suspect, Virginia's Brunswick County Sheriff's Office said.
 
On Saturday, the stolen blue and tan Chevrolet truck was found in Callaway, Maryland, the Maryland State Police said.
 
The truck had been parked in the woods behind a campground for about six days, police said.
 
Authorities believe Jones may have traveled through St. Mary's County, Maryland, and may still be in the state, police said.
 
Jones is described as having black hair and brown eyes, standing at 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds.
 
 
 
Anyone who sees him is urged to call 911.
 
"The Department of Public Safety continues to work with local law enforcement on the situation," North Carolina Corrections spokesman Jerry Higgins told ABC News Tuesday via email.
 
The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office in Virginia said the U.S. Marshals Service is helping with the manhunt.
