Vacancy, Executive Director
Authorized in October 2017, the Maryland Education Development Collaborative was a body politic and corporate and an instrumentality of the State (Chapter 849, Acts of 2017).
To promote 21st-century learning as well as socioeconomic diversity in Maryland's public schools, the Collaborative was to advise the General Assembly, the State Board of Education, and local school systems on needed statutory and policy changes.
The Collaborative was to work to collect and transmit knowledge and technology concerning evidence-based best practices for 21st-century learning to local school systems, the State Board of Education, and local and State policymakers. The purpose was to ensure that: children come to school ready to learn and struggling students receive extra support; every child has access to effective teachers; and each child is expected to achieve. Moreover, an intellectually rigorous and effective system of career and technical education was to be made available to students seeking an applied education; students pursuing higher education were to be prepared to start without needing remedial help; and educational reforms was to be part of a clearly designed and comprehensive plan.
The Collaborative's Governing Board consisted of ten members. They were appointed to four-year terms by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. The Governing Board was to establish an Advisory Board, and the Collaborative was to employ an Executive Director.
Although the Governing Board was to hire an Executive Director, no funding for the position was in the budget, Consequently, the Board never met.
Authorization for the Collaborative ended September 30, 2021.
