Equity and Excellence:
A Guide to Educational Equity in Maryland


Equity and Excellence: A Guide to Educational Equity in MarylandEducational equity is a critical focus for Maryland public schools, so we have compiled this resource to serve as a road map to educators on how to apply an equity lens to all aspects of their work. It is intended to be a valuable tool kit for Local School Systems to develop and apply their own equity policies, developing goals to enhance each system's Local Every Student Succeeds Act (LESSA) Consolidated Strategic Plan. These goals and strategies are intended to increase equitable opportunities for all of our students.
