Looking ahead….

The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is landmark education reform legislation that became State law in 2021. Talbot County Public Schools is currently working on its Blueprint Implementation Plan, which will guide the school system’s work over the ten-year implementation period. 

The Blueprint will fundamentally improve outcomes for students in TCPS as well as all public schools across the state of Maryland.  It focuses on five major policy areas or pillars: early childhood education, high quality and diverse teachers and school leaders, college and career readiness and pathways, more resources to ensure all students are successful, and governance and accountability.


Every child will learn, grow and succeed and graduate ready for college or a career.
