Character Counts!
Character Counts! is an ethical decision making program that helps people make appropriate choices every day.
Our Mission
Education is the foundation of our community. The Frederick County public school system educates its students to become caring, respectful and responsible citizens and family members.
All schools will be safe and inviting, with a climate that fosters learning and character development.
The six pillars are the criteria for problem solving by asking…
  • ”Is it fair?”
  • “Does it show caring?”
  • “Is it responsible?”
  • “Does it show respect?”
  • “Does it show trustworthiness?”
  • “Does it show citizenship?”
