The CLG Toolkit is a project developed and implemented by the Maryland Sate Department of Education (MSDE) in partnership with Local School System (LSS) personnel. The project has two goals. The first goals is to provide Maryland educators with additional resources that will assist them in the instruction of content and skills contained in the Core Learning Goals. The second goal is to enhance student learning in the classroom, as well as improve student success on all Maryland assessments.

Explanation of Specific Resources

Toolkit resources are embedded in the Core Learning Goals document. Different types of tools are under development, although not all tools are currently available for every indicator.
