SCHOOL FINANCE & THE KIRWIN COMMISSION:  With the extension of the Kirwan Commission’s Final Report until 2019 which will provide a detailed educational cost analysis, ACY will continue to monitor proposed legislation that addresses funding for schools in Maryland. We believe that any legislation in reference to school finance formulas or school funding should address closing racial equity gaps, promote higher academic achievement for minority groups and advances opportunities for minority students to receive expanded early childhood, CTE and other pathways to careers in technology such as STEM careers.
