Blueprint for Maryland's Future

The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is educational reform legislation specific to five major policy areas intended to transform Maryland’s educational system. These mandated areas include:
  • Early Childhood Education
  • College and Career Readiness and Pathways
  • High Quality and Diverse Teacher/Leaders
  • More resources to ensure ALL students are successful
  • Governance and Accountability
The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future became law through the 2021 Legislative Session (HB 1372). This will require school systems throughout the state of Maryland to implement major programmatic and fiscal changes specific to the five major policy areas to align with the law.
