MARYLAND’S RECOVERY PLAN FOR EDUCATION – Covid 19 Response and the Path Forward

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and state of emergency declared by Governor Larry Hogan, Maryland schools have been closed since March 16, 2020, and will be closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. There is an understanding that education as we know it today will be changed tremendously in numerous unprecedented ways. It is incumbent upon educational leaders to begin taking concrete steps to restore, reconstruct, and re-design
education as we know it today. The COVID-19 pandemic has in many ways changed our educational, economic, societal, and everyday way of life. As a result, we are now faced with an extraordinary challenge that will require the deployment of our individual and collective expertise to address the needs of students, families, staff, faculty, and school communities. Now is the time for each and every one of us to show conviction and courage in the decisions that are
made, based upon historic changes not only in the state of Maryland, but also worldwide.
