MEREDITH CASPER, DIRECTOR
ACCELERATED AND ENRICHED INSTRUCTION
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
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 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

MCPS Curriculum 2.0 (C2.0) is built around developing students'
critical and creative thinking skills, as well as essential academic
success skills, so that students are well prepared for a lifetime of
learning. The intent of our recent revisions is to better engage
students and teachers, and dedicate more learning time to subjects
such as the arts, information literacy, science, social studies and
physical education.

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to
win glorious triumphs, even though
checkered by failure...than to rank with
those poor spirits who neither enjoy
much nor suffer much, because they live
in a gray twilight that knows not victory
nor defeat.”
− Theodore Roosevelt
