MSDE has provided guidance to all approved trainers to only conduct training and professional development on virtual platforms through June 30, 2020 in response to Governor Hogan’s mandate to restrict group gatherings.

Maryland Family Network, in collaboration with MSDE, has set up a temporary website for the child care provider community to access a listing of all approved and scheduled virtual learning opportunities.
