Bridge To Excellence (BTE)

The Bridge to Excellence in Public Schools Act requires that each Maryland school district develop a comprehensive master plan and proposes an allocation of additional state funds to help finance those plans. The new finance structure is modeled after the recommendations of the Commission on Education Finance, Equity, and Excellence -- known as the Thornton Commission -- and establishes a standards-based approach to public school financing that is based on the premise that all students regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, or socioeconomic background can achieve when they have access to rigorous curriculum, highly qualified teachers, and programs that employ proven strategies and methods.
