Our vision

Our Vision

Our vision is that all schools will provide dynamic learning environments which challenge students to develop their intellectual power, creativity, and sense of self. All teachers will be knowledgeable about how able students learn effectively and will draw on a rich repertoire of innovative instructional strategies to support their students' achievements. There will be a climate of mutual caring and respect among stakeholders: teachers, parents, students, administrators, and community.


Our mission

Our Mission

The mission of Accelerated and Enriched Instruction is the full implementation of the Policy on Enriched and Innovative Instruction in all schools in MCPS. This process includes the following:

  • Development and monitoring of the system wide identification procedures;

  • Collaboration with the curriculum supervisors in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to create curriculum documents that clearly define outcomes for students who are motivated or capable of achieving high-end learning as well as the instructional strategies, resources and materials to achieve those outcomes;

  • Design and implementation of training, guidance, and support to other offices, departments, and divisions in fulfilling their responsibilities outlined in the policy and regulation;

Policy: Gifted and Talented and Education IOA

Regulation: Gifted and Talented Education IOA-RA


Our mission1

Our Mission

  • Advocate, nurture, and support of students from traditionally underrepresented populations in gifted and talented programs;

  • Provide consultative support to schools as they develop and refine their ongoing programs for gifted and talented students in compliance with the policy;

  • Monitor the development and refinement of a continuum of innovative programming models to meet the needs of gifted students at their home schools
