Thanks to all of the Christian school representatives who joined us on Friday, February 6, for the Maryland CAPE meeting! It meant a lot to the MDCAPE coalition who for years has been serving on the front lines for non-public schools in affecting public policy. We are experiencing a very unique time in our state's history as the window of opportunity to pass the education tax credit (known as BOAST) is once again open for debate.

There are several legislative Issues that we are working on as a part of ACSIMD.  The top legislative priority is to work as a part of the MDCAPE coalition to expand and improve the BOOST Tuition program. Currently that legislation has some anti-discrimination language that prohibits some of our schools from participating.
