Some of Maryland’s suburban counties did open classes for small numbers of special education, homeless and other vulnerable students, but most didn’t offer to bring back the general population. Rural counties in the state were more likely to have large numbers of students back. Griffith, superintendent in Talbot County, had her schools open for a majority of students for about five weeks. They are now closed, but Griffith has told parents she will be reviewing her assessment each week. That opportunity, some parents in suburban districts say, was missed by larger districts.
