City School Closures

Last Chance to Comment on City School Closures

The Baltimore City School Board is planning to close six public schools in an effort to save on costs and reinvest in better buildings: Langston Hughes Elementary, Abbottston Elementary, Dr. Rayner Browne Academy, Northeast Middle, W.E.B. DuBois High, and Heritage High. The closures are part of the city’s “21st Century Buildings Plan” – a major renovation of the public school system aimed at updating school building infrastructure and improving learning environments – but have been largely met with public opposition. The school board is holding a final meeting on Tuesday, December 16th, for students, parents, and concerned residents who’d like to voice any last concerns/protests related to the closures.
