Project GOALS: Get to know to your state legislators and reach out to them with an introductory informational email (templates provided).

Follow the five easy steps below!

1. Find your Legislators! Be sure to note your Congressional District # and your State Legislative District #. You will need this for ALL communication outreach. Phase 1 focuses on state legislators.

2. Use the website links to get to know your state legislators. Click on the name of the Senator or Delegate. You can read about the legislation they have sponsored (this shows interests). Find out what Committee they serve on. In the House, Education is part of the Ways and Means Committee.

3. Read the person’s biography! They are short. You might even find a personal connection you can reference.

4. Before you write your email, check to see if your district’s legislators were sponsors of the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future bill which passed in 2021. See list below. This is important education reform and funding legislation that will affect every aspect of education. If they were sponsors, there is a different email template that you may use.

5. Write and send your email, using one of these templates as a guide. Keep it short, 150-200 words, and “sweet” but include some informative statement about gifted education or children (see templates)

AFTER YOU SEND YOUR EMAIL, be sure to inform MCGATE on this Project GOALS Response Form
