Maryland's chief executive is appealing to school superintendents around the state to do some serious belt-tightening.

Gov. Martin O'Malley has, for the most part, spared education although there have been many rounds of budget cuts since he came into the office in 2007. But the Democratic chief executive says the state will need every innovation that can possibly be mustered to meet challenges in the next budget year.

At a meeting of superintendents from around the state in Annapolis on Tuesday, O'Malley recommended they work together to save money in school construction. O'Malley he says one way they can do that is to have standard designs for facilities.
