Strategic Plan Priorities + Enablers

The Strategic Plan priorities encapsulate the comprehensive stakeholder feedback received through multiple methods. Organized into a coherent sequence, the priorities trace the full journey and key milestones that a Maryland student needs to achieve from early childhood through K-12th grade to become successful in college, career, and life.

The priorities and enablers introduced in this section provide the framework for the development of measurable goals and specific strategies to transform public education in Maryland into a world-class educational system. With discreet, evidence-based markers, the priorities map out what a successful educational progression looks like for a Maryland student. The enablers detail the necessary structural conditions that need to be met for every student in the state to support them in successfully reaching their full potential.
