Applications are open for a new statewide workgroup on Blueprint outcomes measures.
The Blueprint Accountability and Implementation Board (AIB) is forming a new workgroup to study and recommend measurements of Blueprint outcomes that local school districts will be evaluated on. The AIB is tasked with overseeing the implementation of Maryland’s major education policy reform initiative known as the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future.
Earlier this year, the AIB formed several advisory committees with stakeholders from around the state, after much criticism about the lack of geographic diversity of the board’s makeup, and several funding and staffing set backs.
It is now forming a new advisory committee that will focus on developing and recommending measures by which to gauge the Blueprint’s outcomes and how well school districts are meeting them.The AIB posted online that it is seeking “data-minded” people to serve on the new workgroup.
The new workgroup won’t convene until January 2023 and is expected to convene every roughly three weeks through July.
Applications will be collected through January 5, 2023. Individuals can nominate themselves or others to serve via an online form, which asks applicants to choose which of the Blueprint’s five pillars they are interested in focusing on.
