    This is an innovative commitment by Superintendent Starr and his team. The JHU School of Education has had the pleasure of partnering with the Montgomery County team on this initiative through consulting, participation in the Next Generation Learning grant that they received from the Gates Foundation, and sharing what we are learning at Henderson-Hopkins. The district is well on its way to creating a personalized approach that will better meet the needs of all students. Kudos!
