Ocean City Elementary School Recognized

Ocean City Elementary School was the first school in the state to achieve 100 percent proficiency in mathematics and reading, as measured by the 2007 Maryland School Assessment (MSA). The accomplishment has sparked the interest of educators across the state, as well as in the United States Department of Education (USDE). Ed Cashman, center, Region III Deputy Representative for U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings, spent June 2 with the faculty and staff to explore the school’s formula for success. Joining Cashman are Principal Irene Kordick and Superintendent Dr. Jon Andes.
