To transform Maryland's education system to a world-class model for every student, the Blueprint for Maryland's Future established the Workgroup on English Language Learners (ELL) in Public Schools. With a focus on those who have been historically underserved, this workgroup is charged with accelerating the academic achievement of more than 88,800 ELL students. Serving a growing population of ELL students, MSDE is working to provide technical assistance to support local school systems in delivering high-quality English language development programs. The purpose of the workgroup is to collect data, study national and international best-in-class practices and make recommendations for implementing and scaling those practices in Maryland public schools. This work will lead to two reports that will drive and deliver on the promise of an excellent education for our ELL students. An interim report is due by December 1, 2021 and a final report is due by December 1, 2022.
