A message from Superintendent Mohammed Choudhury:

Welcome to the Maryland State Department of Education, where we are leading the implementation of The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future to offer the full promise of an excellent and equitable education for every Maryland child, especially those who have been historically underserved. As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and implement the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring real, meaningful change – and truly reimagine the education experience. 

Learn more about the active, exciting work underway that is bringing the Blueprint to life in school systems and classrooms across the State. From the English Learner Workgroup to Expert Review Teams, and from redefining meaningful indicators of poverty to expanding community school services, the Blueprint is delivering the resources needed to ensure a bright future for every child.
