Superintendent S. Dallas Dance's transition team, which was assembled to review past school system reports and meet with stakeholders groups, will present its recommendations at a Tuesday night Board of Education meeting.
"As I assumed the superintendency, it was important to me to have a comprehensive and strategic process of studying the school system and listening to the voices of students, parents, staff, and other stakeholders," Dance said in a news release. "My transition team worked tirelessly to gather information and formulate invaluable recommendations. We will combine their ideas with what we are learning through my ongoing 'listening tour' of schools and communities to develop our upcoming strategic plan, Blueprint 2.0."
The recommendations will be short and long term initiatives addressing 10 areas: organization; communication; teaching and learning; program evaluation and effectiveness; recruiting, retaining, growing, and developing excellent employees; equity; budget development; technology; strategic planning; and creating healthy, safe, and orderly environments, the release reads.
The transition team, which consists of 21 members, is led by former state superintendents Nancy Grasmick and Bill Bosher, according to the release. School system staff, education experts and stakeholders also comprise the team.
Additionally, Dance will present a report reflecting on his first 100 days in office. The superintendent started his post with the school system on July 1.
Both reports will be available on the Baltimore County Public Schools website on Wednesday.
