WCPS App

The Washington County PS mobile app is available for download by parents and the public at the iTunes Store or Google Play. The app is a free download and can be customized so that parents can see information from the schools their children attend. School system news and events are also available. In addition, the app will feature information posted immediately when schools are delayed, dismissed early or closed due to inclement weather or for other reasons.

The Washington County Board of Education is always looking for interested citizens to fill vacancies on advisory committees. For additional information about the committees that advise the Board and an application for those committees, please download an application.

Feedback always welcome!

The seals, initials and school system identification cannot be used without the written permission of the system.  Please contact the Public Information Office at 301-766-2809.
