Dual Enrollment is Now Available at NO COST to TCPS Students

TCPS High School Students in Class

The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future legislation aspires to expand and elevate educational opportunities for all students. There are many initiatives in the Blueprint that will provide additional opportunities for students, including a provision that students have access to dual enrollment at no cost. The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has recently advised local school systems that this opportunity is to be implemented in the 2022-2023 school year, a year earlier than anticipated. This means that Talbot County Public Schools will be paying tuition costs for TCPS students who are taking dual enrollment classes at Maryland Institutions of Higher Education beginning this school year.

TCPS is excited about this aspect of the Blueprint and the potential it has to encourage our students to engage in college courses. Thank you for your continued support of TCPS as we navigate the Blueprint implementation process. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor.

Superintendent’s Update 9/21/23

We are back in full swing in our classrooms and on our athletic fields! I hope you’ll come out and support our Fall athletes at Easton High and St. Michaels High!This week some of our students joined me in participating in the county’s September 11th Commemoration here in downtown Easton. This is always a very somber and reflective event, and our students did a fantastic job.

I have LOVED being back in our school buildings with all of our students and staff these last few days! A terrific group of new teachers and Instructional Assistants has joined our outstanding team of educators; our Operations Team has worked hard to make sure that our buildings are SPARKLING; and our Transportation Team is back on the road to ensure our children arrive at school safely!

Superintendent’s Update 9/7/23

We had a fantastic first week of school, and I want to thank all of our TCPS Students and Families for their support and enthusiasm. We are grateful to the many community organizations who provided school supplies, backpacks, and other basic necessities so that all of our students are equipped for another great year of learning.
