On September 13, 2010, Governor Martin O’Malley announced the appointment of Dr. Michael J. Martirano, superintendent of St. Mary’s County Public Schools, to the Maryland Longitudinal Data System (LDS) Center Governing Board.

“The education appointments made to the Maryland Longitudinal Data System Center Governing Board will help Maryland fulfill its Race to the Top education goals,” said Governor O’Malley.  “Under the supervision of this Governing Board, this center will provide data to Maryland’s Pre-K to 12 education, higher education, and workforce and economic development agencies that are essential to the development and sustainability of our reform efforts.”

The Governing Board is an independent unit of State government responsible for the logistical, phase in and organizational plans for the LDS Center.  The Board will also be responsible for the policies and oversight related to privacy laws. 

 “The nomination of Dr. Martirano to the LDS Center Governing Board shines the light on the outstanding work he has done in St. Mary’s County,” said Bill Mattingly, chairman of the Board of Education of St. Mary’s County.  “His work is recognized throughout Maryland and the nation.  We are extremely proud of him.”

Dr. Martirano has been an educator for 27 years and has amassed a wide range of educational and administrative experiences. In 2010, he was named Innovator of the Year by The Daily Record, selected as the Awardee for Individual Excellence by the Maryland Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), and was selected as a member of The Century Club.  Additionally, he was named Maryland’s 2009 Superintendent of the Year by the Public School Superintendents Association of Maryland. 

“This is a very important initiative and the work of the Governing Board is critical to the implementation and success of the educational reform efforts in Maryland,” said Dr. Martirano.
