Hearing Set on Maryland High School Assessments


The Maryland State Board of Education will host a regional hearing Sept. 18 at North Point High School to hear public comments on the Maryland High School Assessment (HSA).
The hearing is at 7 p.m. and the Board will only hear comments on the HSAs. The maximum speaking time is three minutes and time has been scheduled for approximately 40 speakers. Anyone wishing to speak during the hearing must sign up on site beginning at 6:15 p.m.
Although State Board members and education officials will not respond to any comments during the hearing, they will listen and take all comments into consideration as they deliberate education policy.
In addition to the hearing at North Point, the State Board will also hold four other regional hearings in Maryland in September. North Point High School is located at 2500 Davis Road in Waldorf, MD.
Written testimony may also be directed to the Maryland State Board of Education, 200 W. Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201; by email at; or by fax to 310-333-2275. Testimony must be submitted by Sept. 20.
