Along with the national presidential election on Nov. 8, several local elections took place in the county. Of the seven seats on the MCPS Board of Education, three were up for election, and Maryland voted on three different ballot measures, as well.
Starting Monday November 14, students gathered in the media center after school for a week to talk and engage in meaningful dialogue about race. Students also utilized this time to organize and plan the next step following the walk out.
Hundreds of Montgomery Blair students left campus on Nov. 14 to participate in a national protest against President-elect Donald Trump.
The Montgomery Blair High School Class of 2016 raised its SAT score by five points from 2015. However, the Class of 2016's SAT participation rate dropped both in MCPS and at Blair, and the decrease was even greater among Hispanic/Latino students.
Melissa Young joined Blair staff this 2016-17 school year as the Latino Achievement Coordinator. The position was created to help Spanish-speaking students succeed in academics with the support of their families.
