Solomon Sapiro, a 2017 Wootton High School graduate and current University of Maryland student, created MyMCPS+ to answer any questions a student may have about their grades.

MCPS has moved away from EdLine, which was used by students and parents/guardians to monitor grades. A program called MyMCPS is now used by the county and the website allows students to view their grades.

MyMCPS+, Solomon's creation, is a grade manager app that allows students and parents to view current grades and see how specific grades on upcoming assignment can affect the overall grade. It uses a color coded system that clearly identifies each different type of grade and is simple enough for anyone from an elementary school student to a grandparent (and everyone in between) to use. Solomon told me that student usernames and passwords are secure and not even he has access to them.

Though the app isn’t affiliated with MCPS, it’s currently used by thousands of students and parents to help monitor current grades and the impact upcoming assignments may have on a grade.

“ One of the best things about the app?” Sapiro asked. “It’s free!”

In addition to MyMCPS+, Solomon has created two other very popular apps– BrickBreaker and MoCoSnow.
