Laurel School District

Laurel Public Schools operate within school districts which are separate entities responsible for administering Public Schools. Laurel school districts are led by boards or commissions who set policy for the district and appoint a Superintendent of Schools. Board and commission members may be elected by voters within the district, or in some cases may be appointed by the legislative body that serves the district. While the Maryland State impose frameworks and some minimum requirements for length of school year, teacher qualifications, curriculum and other elements of public education, the Laurel school district has significant latitude within these frameworks and the authority to manage the day-to-day operation of Public Schools.

Types of Laurel Public Schools

Laurel Public Schools are largely organized into three groups, each serving different grade levels. Laurel Elementary Schools typically serve students from Pre-K, Kindergarten or Grade 1 through Grade 5 or Grade 6. While all Public School districts begin Primary School by Grade 1, not all offer Kindergarten or Pre-K grades. Laurel Middle Schools cover Grades 6 or 7 through Grade 8. Laurel High Schools covers Grades 9 through 12. In small school districts, all grades may be served in one school. The completion of Grade 12 is generally considered to indicate student readiness for post-secondary education.

Specialized Public Schools in Laurel

Many Public School districts offer alternatives to traditional Public School structures, including Charter Schools and Magnet Schools. Laurel Charter Schools are Public Schools initiated by a parent or community group or organization to serve a special population or to provide special curricula or instructional practices. They are formed by a special charter or agreement with the school district that grants them additional flexibility in how they operate. Laurel Magnet Schools are Public Schools that offer a specialized theme or subject emphasis, such as science and technology, international and cultural studies, or the arts.
