Beyond Community Schools

Date: Monday Oct. 3
Location: Parkview Rec and Tech 2610 Francis St. 21217
Time: 6-7:30

Baltimore City Schools recently released a policy that formally supports the presence of community schools in Baltimore. While TDP sees this policy as a very positive move, we also want to take the chance to discuss a more expansive vision of what it would take to truly change the culture of schools so that they include the voices of teachers, parents, community members and students. Come together to contribute to a conversation about the new policy. We will hear from a panel of local community activists and educators to gain insights into innovative models with a community-centered approach, and share ideas and questions. TDP will compile the ideas and questions to share with the school board so we can advocate for a more robust policy across all community schools. The event is free to attend and snacks and refreshments will be provided.
