Take 15 LogoThis statewide initiative encourages Maryland families to dedicate at least 15 minutes each day doing everyday activities, like eating dinner together, and turning those moments into learning opportunities. The goals of the program are to build awareness among parents that involvement in their children’s education is critical and to provide resources that make this involvement easy and fun. This website includes parent tips in both English and Spanish with information and resources for parents, activities for families, links to Maryland Public Libraries and other family friendly websites, information on what's new, and corporate sponsors supporting this initiative.
