PGCPS students showed growth in both English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics on the 2022-23 Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP) — with Black Students, English Learners and economically disadvantaged students outsourcing their peers across the state in many instances!
“More than half of the 50 Maryland schools showing the greatest improvement in ELA are in Prince George’s County — proof that our students are trending in the right direction,” said Superintendent Millard House II. “Data also shows that nearly 25 percent of our students are just on the cusp of proficiency, which speaks to the effectiveness of post-Covid interventions and instruction.”
"A focus on writing, sharing strategies among schools and strong leadership were named as reasons for the spike in test scores by principals around the district, showing that there wasn’t one special formula. But they consistently said targeted, data-driven interventions were one thing that worked."
