WHAT IS MAINTENANCE OF EFFORT (MOE)?

MOE--Maintenance of Effort--involves Maryland state law that sets the floor for local school spending; it is intended to be a minimum floor, NOT a ceiling.
MOE laws have been in place since 1984; in 2012, the Maryland General Assembly passed a revised law covering MOE.  For a description of the current law, and its provisions for waivers, CLICK HERE to read a letter by Maryland State Senator Nancy King
