"Our FY 25 Budget Request reflects the resources needed to strengthen student learning as we implement the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future while addressing the critical budget gaps caused by the expiration of key grants. Our goal is to continue our progress in achieving teaching and learning excellence for all."

Maryland Blueprint

Passed in 2021, the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future Legislation includes comprehensive changes to Maryland’s public education system. Blueprint requirements will enrich student experiences, accelerate improvements to student outcomes, and improve the quality of education in Maryland.

Delivering opportunity and promise of a better future to every Maryland child, the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future will transform the State’s prekindergarten through post-secondary systems with extensive policy changes and an unprecedented investment of State and local resources.

Prioritizing equity, the Blueprint prescribes new programs and innovative approaches to catalyze a world-renowned education system that aims to eradicate achievement gaps and ensures opportunity for every student, regardless of family income, race, ethnicity, or ability.

The Blueprint is structured around 5 Pillars:

  • Early Childhood Education
  • High Quality & Diverse Teachers and Leaders
  • College & Career Readiness
  • More Resources for Students to be Successful
  • Governance and Accountability
