MCPS Launches Open Data Portal

January 6, 2015

Montgomery County Public Schools launched a new open data portal on Monday, Jan. 5, 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.

    “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.”

   Among the data released on the OpenDataMCPS portal today are:

     The Superintendent’s Recommended Operating Budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016;

     Enrollment for Fiscal Years 2013 and 2014;

     Select data from the “Schools at a Glance” publication, including class sizes and student/teacher ratios, state performance indicators, and school positions and costs; and;

     Facilities information, including school addresses and attendance boundaries.

    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.

   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.
