AFT-Maryland, along with the Baltimore Teachers Union, Maryland Communities United, and the Center for Popular Democracy will be hosting a rally to promote and advocate widespread support for community schools.
Throughout Baltimore, Community Schools are transforming public education. Community Schools are rooted in their local communities. Building innovative partnerships with non-profits, city agencies, and businesses, Community Schools multiply public resources to bring top-quality academics, services, and programs to ensure children are physically, emotionally, and socially prepared to learn.
Join us for a family-friendly gathering to urge the Mayor, the City Council, and the Board of School Commissioners to expand Baltimore's vision and investment in spreading a Community School strategy throughout our city.
We are looking for a resolution from the City Council and a financial commitment from the mayor's office of $2.2 million in this academic year and $10 million next year to fully fund exciting and emerging community schools.
The rally will be on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. at the Baltimore City Hall at 100 North Holliday Street. Find out more and RSVP at CommunitiesUnite.org.
IF it rains, the rally will be inside Zion Lutheran Church, 400 E Lexington St, next door to City Hall.
