These meetings offer technical assistance from the Maryland State Department of Education personnel, peer to peer technical assistance, and other outside resources selected by the coordinator based on expressed needs of the grantees. These meetings are either all day or half-day meetings.
Grantees consist of schools, local school systems, faith-based organizations, and community-based organizations.
