MCPS Launches Open Data Portal
OpenDataMCPS provides easy access to school data and information
Montgomery County Public Schools launched a new open data portal Monday (January 5, 2015) that allows the public to search, sort, and download a variety of information about the district. The portal can be viewed at http://data.montgomeryschoolsmd.org. Among the data released on the OpenDataMCPS portal today are:
In the coming weeks and months additional information will be added to the portal, including performance data aligned to the five milestones in the district’s Strategic Planning Framework, such as Advanced Placement and SAT performance.
“The OpenDataMCPS portal makes it easier for our community to access important information about our school district and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to transparency and accountability,” said Superintendent of Schools Joshua P. Starr. “I’m pleased to launch this portal today and look forward to sharing more information with the public in the coming months.”
MCPS has contracted with Socrata to host the OpenDataMCPS portal. Socrata also provides the infrastructure for Montgomery County’s open data initiative, allowing for the easy exchange of information between MCPS and the county.
