Nearly 40 Prince George's County schools face tougher oversight and possible sanctions after falling short of state standards on test scores, officials announced yesterday. That amounted to about 40 percent of Maryland's elementary and middle schools in such straits.

But one Prince George's high-poverty school and six others from Montgomery County improved enough to move off the state's watch list.

Maryland's report card has been issued and the news continues to be troubling for Prince George's County, where only one school of a possible five was removed from a list of schools marked for possible state intervention. Montgomery County saw six schools removed.

The schools are graded based on the percentage of students who score as proficient in reading and math under standards set by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
