Maryland Schools Closed for the Remainder of 2019-2020 Academic School Year
I wanted to share below the information from the Maryland State Department of Education http://marylandpublicschools.org/Pages/default.aspx
On May 6, 2020, the Maryland State Superintendent of Schools announced the closure of schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic school year.
Online and distance learning opportunities will continue. To guide school systems and school communities on the path forward, the State Department of Education has released a comprehensive plan for long-term recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
The “Maryland Together: Maryland's Recovery Plan for Education” was drafted in collaboration with the State Board, local school superintendents, and with input from a wide array of stakeholders throughout our State. This document lays the groundwork for the coming months as we maintain and improve upon online learning opportunities and identifies methods for recovering any lost instruction time that has occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan also establishes the foundation for school systems as they begin to consider how they will bring students and educators back into school buildings once they are able to in a safe way.
