“We continue to focus on teaching and learning and providing students with the support they need to build strong reading foundations,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Vickie L. Cartwright. “We want all students to be reading on grade level or higher and reduce the pandemic's impact on student learning, particularly on our youngest learners. We appreciate and commend the hard work of our teachers, administrators and staff along with the support of our families.
