BALTIMORE - Baltimore City Public Schools has some of the oldest and worst buildings in the state. National experts say the buildings are failing students.
On Tuesday the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners and City Schools CEO Dr. Andres Alonso will release a plan to bring the district's school buildings to 21st century standards.
The plan proposes to do this over the next ten years. City and state officials and community partners have collaborated with city schools to develop a strategy for overhauling the districts buildings.
They want to better align its size and enrollment. Dr. Alonso will unveil both the details of the 10-year buildings plan and the district's proposals for financing and managing the construction program.
The news conference will begin at 11:30am at Calvin Rodwell Elementary School in Baltimore.
