A presentation regarding Online Learning Opportunities in Maryland was conducted on May 22, 2018, for the Board of Education. Following the presentation, the Board requested that a Digital Learning Work Group be formed to learn more about student online opportunities. The report from that Work Group was shared on September 24, 2019. As a result, the Maryland State Board of Education endorsed a Digital Learning Advisory Committee to review and evaluate the short-term, mid-term, and long term recommendations presented by the Digital Learning Work Group and to return at the end of the year with an implementation plan for the short-term recommendations.
The Committee will present a report of its findings and recommendations to the Maryland State Board of Education during the spring of 2020.
The Council will meet monthly through the fall of 2020. Meetings of the Committee are open to members of the public.
