Fewer school days being considered
Maryland Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick said school systems should be allowed to dip under the 180-day minimum that is required by state law. She planned to make the recommendation to the state Board of Education, which has final say over the matter.
Educators in Prince George's and Montgomery counties have expressed preliminary support for waiving the 180-day requirement.
Grasmick also said she would make a decision about pushing back statewide standardized tests in consultation with local superintendents.
Virginia lawmakers are also considering a reduction in their state's minimum requirements.
