Board of Education's Legislative Positions Paper

2018 Legislative Positions

CCPS’s top priorities for the 2018 Legislative Session include:

Support for continued governance autonomy to set education policy and school budgets which provide educational benefits for all students and opposition to unfunded mandates. Specifically, Calvert County Board of Education is seeking approval of enhanced local school calendar flexibility. We support continued autonomy to adopt education policies that promote high standards for academic and fiscal accountability. Therefore, we oppose any executive, legislative or regulatory initiatives which would have the effect of reducing board governance or budgetary authority, or which create unfunded mandates.

Support for full State funding for Marylands outstanding public schools. Specifically, Calvert County Board of Education is seeking increased funding for prekindergarten. We urge the Governor and General Assembly to support increased funding of public education in the FY 2019 State Budget. We are committed to preparing all students to be globally competitive in college and careers. Increased state investments in public education are essential in these times of rapid change, rising expectations, and increased costs.

Support for robust State funding for school construction and renovation projects. Specifically, Calvert County Board of Education is seeking funding and process reforms to enhance local flexibility. We urge the Governor and General Assembly to support increased investments in school construction and renovation projects.
