    Dear Families and Staff Members,

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year. As the Interim Superintendent of Schools, I am thrilled to be part of a community that is dedicated to providing the best education possible to all students.

    Over the past few years, GCPS has implemented many positive changes that will continue to benefit our students and staff. We have invested in new technology to enhance the learning experience and provided more opportunities for our students to succeed. Opportunities have expanded in pre-kindergarten programs, support systems have expanded, and high school accelerated learning opportunities have grown dramatically.

    As we embark on a new school year, I want to encourage all of our families and staff members to continue to grow in supporting our students and our communities. Garrett County Schools are the hubs for our communities and by working together we will continue to deliver rigorous, relevant, educational programs with extended learning opportunities.

    Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our schools. I look forward to working with you as we embark on another successful year.


    Dr. Brenda E. McCartney
    Interim Superintendent of Schools
