For the past 20 years, Dr. Nancy S. Grasmick, State Superintendent of Schools, has worked tirelessly to improve public education in Maryland. Her efforts have made a tremendous impact on student achievement, and have been recognized and used as a model for best practices throughout the nation. In the past several years alone, the state has been recognized for its growth in Advanced Placement participation, its groundbreaking initiatives and programs, and has been ranked top in the nation for public education.
Dr. Grasmick will be greatly missed in Prince George’s County. She has visited our schools on numerous occasions to recognize our successes, participate in district events and celebrations, and share her input on programs and initiatives. We wish her
the best in all her future endeavors, and extend our gratitude for all she has done for the students of Prince George’s County.
It was announced today that Dr. Grasmick who is the longest serving state schools chief in the country would step down in June. Her replacement will be appointed by the Maryland State Board of Education.
