In 2014, the Maryland State Board of Education (State Board) passed a sweeping reform of the state’s student discipline regulations. Five years following statewide implementation of these regulations, the State Board believed it was timely to examine the impact of these regulations and whether the intended intent has been achieved, and determine what modifications, if any, may be needed.

The work of the Task Force will be accomplished through large group discussions; by gathering information and input from stakeholders and subject experts; through presentations, panel discussions, surveys and/or focus groups; and by reviewing relevant research and reports. Members of the public are also encouraged to submit input to Dr. Vermelle Greene, Task Force Chair, and/or to the State Board via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or U.S. mail to the Office of the State Board, 200 West Baltimore Street, 7th Floor, Baltimore, Maryland, 21201.The Task Force will use the information gathered to make recommendations for regulatory, policy, and/or guidance changes for the State Boards' consideration.
