Race To the Top Maryland Achieving a World Class Status
Common Core State Standards June 2010, Maryland State Board of Education adopted the Common Core Standards June 2011 draft of Maryland new state curriculum will be presented to the State Board of Education
Resources The English/language arts standards are available http://corestandards.org/the-standards/english- language-arts-standards The math standards are available at http://corestandards.org/the- standards/mathematics http://corestandards.org/the- standards/mathematics Additional information can be found at www.corestandards.orgwww.corestandards.org or www.MarylandPublicSchools.org www.MarylandPublicSchools.org
Five Components of Maryland’s Race to the Top Ensure that all students are fully prepared for college and careers in the 21 st century Build a statewide technology infrastructure Develop and support great teachers and great leaders Turn around low-achieving schools Enhance STEM Programming
Educator Evaluations Changes will come beginning in school year 2012-2013. Student growth will be a significant component of teacher and principal evaluations. The new system will be piloted in 7 school systems (not HCPSS) from January 2011 -June 2012.
Changes to Teacher Tenure Teachers do not gain tenure until after their 3rd year, instead of their 2nd year. The “3rd year probationary” option has been repealed Teachers who transfer in from a system in which they had tenure and a satisfactory final evaluation serve a 1 year probationary period.
We know that from the moment students enter school, the most important factor in their success is the teacher standing at the front of the classroom.
