As part of our COVID-19 mitigation strategy, we are using new disinfection robots to deep clean schools and office buildings. UV-C technology kills coronavirus, flu, MRSA and more — and because the robots sanitize the room before employees clean, it also helps keep our team safe. When a COVID-19 case is detected, the robots can fully disinfect a standard sized classroom in three minutes.

The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is a historic education reform plan to close student achievement gaps, raise teacher salaries and transform our education system over the next decade. To ensure proper implementation, a state panel is being established to guide and approve education reform plans for each jurisdiction across the State.

To be considered, residents should submit a resume and cover letter stating why they want to serve and what they would bring to the panel by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24 to email@example.com.
