Dear Students and Parents of Dorchester County Public Schools:
Dorchester County Public Schools are committed to the success of each and every one of our students. We define that success in terms of each student completing his/her program of study and emerging college or career ready, in order to be competitive in our ever-changing global economy.
Towards that end, we have prepared this Dorchester County Public Schools website for each of our stakeholders. It contains the information you need to plan proactively for virtually every phase of school life. Please read it carefully and refer to it regularly.
In closing, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2012-2013 school year; let us work together to make it a great one!
A Study for the Eastern Shore of Maryland Educational Consortium
(A Community Outreach Unit of the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business at Salisbury University)
The Public School Systems (grades K through 12) of the Eastern Shore of Maryland provide a wide array of benefits to the residents of each of the counties. In addition to the educational services provided to the students of the counties, the expenditures of the school system provide a significant economic impact in the counties and region. The return on investment (local economic impact compared to taxpayer investment) of the public school systems within the Eastern Shore region is approximately 92% with a total annual impact of over $1.8 Billion and close to 20,000 jobs supported.
