The Worksheet • June 2023
Welcome back to Strong Schools Maryland's monthly newsletter, The Worksheet. It's (more or less) summer, so let's make like a swimming pool and dive right in 🤿
☀️ This summer, Strong Schools Maryland is bringing back the Tour for Maryland's Future because we want to learn more about the issues impacting public education in your community. Click below to learn more about the Tour and how to get involved!
The AIB needs your feedback on local implementation.
Right now, the Accountability & Implementation Board is collecting feedback on local implementation plans, and we want to make sure your voice is heard.
TEAM LEADER SPOTLIGHT
Baltimore City Team Leaders, Alice Burley and Dr. Deborah Carter stepped up big time with their help on our local implementation plan review, submitting reviews for two counties.
This herculean effort will help the Strong Schools Maryland network better understand what resources each county needs for Blueprint implementation.
Great job, Team Leaders!

🪧 Start or Join a Team of 10
In 2020, people like you stood up, spoke out, and passed the Blueprint for Maryland's Future.
In 2023, we want you to help us make sure that Maryland lawmakers #KeepThePromise of World Class Schools: Sign up here to start or join a Team of 10 in your county – we're going to need all the help we can get.
Some final, important thoughts for this month –
Maryland Medicaid renewal is NOT automatic this year. Make sure your contact info is up to date so you can receive renewal notice for your health insurance. Once you receive it, you’ll have 45 days to renew.
Get started by heading to MarylandHealthConnect.gov/Checkin or by calling (toll free) 855-642-8572 to check in with medicaid today.
We want to see you this summer and talk with you about our plans for 2024, and maybe share a burger and a frosty glass of iced tea 🍻, but we'll need your help to get there – please consider making a contribution today to fund the work we do and keep us out on the road this summer!
And please forward this to a friend, neighbor, or co-worker who wants to get the latest on the Blueprint in their inbox.
For the Future,
Strong Schools Maryland
