The Affordable Care Act and You
Everyone's health needs are different. Therefore, the new health coverage marketplace--Maryland Health Connection--will help individuals, families and small business employers understand their choices and find the option that is most appropriate for them.
We have developed a series of scenarios in Prezi to provide insight into what options are available and to whom. A guide, which provides more detail, is also available. Please note: The scenarios are not intended to reflect the entire scope of business or consumer needs.
There is also a healthcare reform page which provides additional resources. There is also information specifically pertaining to foster youth. For additional help and information, consumers and small businesses can also call Maryland Health Connection's call center at 855-642-8572 for answers and help with enrollment. Remember: Life happens. When it does, it is good to have insurance. Get covered!
The Effective School Discipline for Maryland is a public information campaign to complement the disciplinary reform work being done by the Maryland State Board of Education. The campaign provides information on alternate methods of holding students accountable for their behavior while keeping them in school and actively learning.
We know that the teaching environment can be challenging. Advocates for Children and Youth compiled best practices that are working in Maryland and around the nation for use by school administrators and educators. These best practices are available through the online tool, Effective School Discipline Guide. The magazine version of this document is embedded above and is read-only. However, a downloadable PDF version is available here.
