Improvement plans OK'd for 32 schools

August 05, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Thirty-one Baltimore City schools and one Somerset County school have received approval for their improvement plans from the Maryland State Board of Education.

The plans for improving school management, tying curricula to state standards and making record-keeping more consistent are required because the schools were identified in January as failing to meet or progress toward state standards.

The plans approved last week will take effect immediately and be replaced next spring by long-range plans for improvement.

The schools are among 37 identified this year for possible state takeover.
