FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, February 8, 2024

Dr. J. Scott Smith, Superintendent of Schools, 301-475-5511, ext. 32178
Dr. Maureen Montgomery, Deputy Superintendent of Schools, 301-475-5511, ext. 32135

As required by the Blueprint for Maryland, beginning next school year (2024-2025),  blueprint funding will support costs for those students who are designated as College and Career Ready (CCR) or are economically disadvantaged.  This includes costs incurred for college courses taken on campus or online, Advanced Placement (AP) tests, or Career and Technical Education (CTE) certifications.

The newly adopted CCR Standard* offers students two options for achieving the CCR designation.

Option 1: Students can meet the CCR Standard by demonstrating both Academic Success and Math Mastery. Academic Success is achieved by earning a High School Grade Point Average (non-weighted GPA) of 3.00 or higher. Math Mastery may be achieved by either earning a final course grade of A, B, or C in Algebra I OR by scoring Proficient or above (a score of 3 or 4) on the Algebra I MCAP assessment.

Option 2: Students can meet the CCR Standard by scoring Proficient or above (a score of 3 or 4) on both the English 10  MCAP assessment AND the Algebra I MCAP assessment.

CCR status is not determined until the end of the 10th-grade year.

Students who have not met the CCR standard can request a retest for the Spring 2024 MCAP English 10 or Algebra I assessment by contacting their guidance counselor no later than Friday, February 16th.

* Per MSDE, “During this transition, students may be designated as meeting CCR through the Interim CCR Standard OR the new CCR Standard at the end of SY 2023-2024 in preparation for SY 2024-2025.”  The  Interim CCR standard can be found on the MSDE website.
