MAYA Partners Will Help School Districts Develop ‘Grow Your Own Staff’ Programs,
Innovative School Models, and Excellent Community Schools
MAYA Consulting is an approved partner for the new Maryland Leads grant initiative, created by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) to use federal funds to respond to pandemic impacts on public education. Local Education Agencies (LEAs) can leverage strategic partnerships to target critical needs, including building teacher and staff pipelines, accelerating student learning to close achievement and opportunity gaps, and increasing support for the needs of underserved students and communities.
MAYA consultants will provide best-in-class support to school systems for three high-leverage strategies to support equity and excellence in Maryland school communities:
- Grow Your Own Staff
- Innovative School Models
- Community Schools
MSDE’s partner matching window is open from May 25 to June 2, when LEAs can make partner selections.
