Maryland to try new school model - MyEasternShoreMD: State Regional

EASTON — Gov. Larry Hogan announced on Wednesday, Nov. 24 his commitment to launch up to four P-TECH 9-14 schools in Maryland to help better prepare students for college and entry into the job market.
Hogan was joined by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, President of the IBM International Foundation Stanley Litow, CEO of Baltimore City Public Schools Gregory Thornton and Johns Hopkins University President Ronald Daniels.
“I have been talking with staff about the possibility of one on the Eastern Shore,” said Superintendent of Caroline County Public Schools John Ewald. “It could be challenging based on the availability of resources and space but it’s a very worthy program.”
The P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) education model was co-developed by IBM. P-TECH schools offer students an integrated six-year education program that combines high school, college and workplace skills.
Graduates from Maryland’s P-TECH schools will earn their high school diploma and a two-year postsecondary degree in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) from an accredited community college. These students will also get career experience and mentorship in the workplace, and can gain practical workplace experience with skills-based, paid internships...
