The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is groundbreaking legislation, passed in 2021, that promises a world class education for all students in the state of Maryland. Each school system is charged with developing a plan to implement the requirements of the Blueprint. This 10-year initiative is comprehensive and transformational; thus, it requires a phased approach.
In March 2023, PGCPS submitted its draft plan to the Accountability and Implementation Board (AIB) and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). On June 6, 2023, MSDE fully approved PGCPS’ plan. Subsequently, on July 27, 2023, the AIB fully approved the plan as well. An updated implementation plan is due to the AIB on March 15, 2024.
Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS), along with the other 23 local education agencies (LEAs), was asked to create a plan that ensures the Blueprint for Maryland's Future is implemented with fidelity.
Thus, part of the process requires monitoring, reviewing, and evaluating each LEA’s implementation of their plan. More specifically, the Blueprint legislation requires MSDE to establish, administer, and supervise an Expert Review Team to observe classes, conduct interviews and focus groups, and use other data to analyze the implementation of the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future in schools. Additionally, the Expert Review Team will determine the underlying causes for student performance problems, evaluate behavioral health services provided in schools, and develop recommendations to address identified issues. More information about the Expert Review Team can be found on the Expert Review Team webpage.
