It serves as a national clearinghouse for information on educational problems and their solutions, linking state and local executive, legislative, professional, educational and lay leaders to a national network. This information is available to private associations and state and local governments. Maryland pays an annual state membership assessment. The members of the Maryland Education Council represent Maryland on the Commission (Code Education Article, secs. 25-101 through 25-104).

web: The Southern Regional Education Board is the nation's oldest interstate compact for higher education. The Board plans for the use of educational programs and facilities by its member states that enable them to multiple the benefits of cooperative efforts, while dividing costs. The Board operates under the Southern Regional Education Compact of 1949, which Maryland ratified in 1949 (Chapter 282, Acts of 1949). Fifteen other states have ratified the Compact. Created at the request of southern political and education leaders, the Board brings together educators, government officials, and other regional leaders to advance education and thereby improve the social and economic life of the South. Working directly with state governments, academic institutions, and other agencies, the Board conducts research and reports on needs, problems, and developments in education; coordinates cooperative programs to upgrade training in undergraduate, graduate, professional and technical education; and administers interstate arrangements for regional educational services and institutions. These reciprocal agreements provide quality education without developing expensive specialized programs in each state.

Coordinating K-12 and Higher Education Systems to Support Student Achievement
Many local school-college efforts are operating across the country. These partnerships principally center around curriculum development (academic alliances), teacher preparation and professional development (clinical or professional development schools), and student support services (early outreach programs that include mentoring or tutorial supports). While the programs are encouraging, the vast majority still operate on the margin, in both schools and postsecondary institutions. Unfortunately, most have yet to be integrated into the structure and programs of the institutions. New Governance Structures. One strategy for coordinating K-12 and higher education systems is to create a governance structure that assigns direct responsibility for such coordination. In 1991, the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the Maryland State Department of Education jointly appointed and currently share a deputy secretary of higher education/deputy superintendent of education. The role of the office is to coordinate and promote the concept of a single continuum of education kindergarten through graduate school. The deputy is responsible for coordinating the complementary interests, programs, and authority of both state agencies for achieving shared state education goals. These responsibilities include the following:

Pennington Staff Writer One day after the alleged "Beltway Snipers" were arrested late last month, U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige released $600,000 in federal funds to help schools in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia that were affected by October's shootings in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area. However, in some areas, counseling and mental health services have taken a back seat to security cameras and radio devices. Maryland and Virginia each received $250,000, and the District of Columbia received $100,000 under Project SERV - the School Emergency Response to Violence program. "These recent attacks have forced our schools to take extraordinary steps to protect our children and their teachers," Paige said.

and the Here now are the excerpts from Selection of Reading and Writing Media for Students with Visual Impairments: Braille, Print, or Both? A Resource Document: Preface In recent years, the use of Braille by school-age children who are visually impaired has become the focus of advocacy groups and educators. Many individuals have come to believe there has been a decline in the use of Braille, and see this as a cause of illiteracy among blind and visually impaired students. To address concerns that had been raised in Maryland, the State Department of Education established an advisory panel in November, 1991, to develop guidelines to be used by Admission, Review, and Dismissal/Individualized Education Program Committees (ARD/IEP Committees) when determining reading and writing media for students with visual impairments. At the same time, a task force was formed by the National Federation of the Blind of Maryland to draft legislation related to literacy for students who are blind and visually impaired. These efforts took place concurrently for most of the 1991-92 school year. Participants in both of these activities included members of the Department, local school systems, the Maryland School for the Blind, the National Federation of the Blind, the American Council for the Blind, and consumers.
