BCPS Forums
From Baltimore County Councilman: David Marks

I am sending you another reminder about these important community forums to look at our school facilities. We have made tremendous progress throughout the Fifth District - additions at our Towson elementary schools, the forthcoming renovation of Dumbarton middle school, air conditioning at numerous schools from Towson to Perry Hall - but it is very important to look long-term at some unsettled needs. 

If you live in the northeast in particular, this is your best opportunity to speak in favor of funding for new schools to serve communities such as Carney, Fullerton, Kingsville, Perry Hall and White Marsh.

Community forums scheduled to seek feedback about BCPS schools facilities
What: Baltimore County Public Schools will host five community forums this fall that have been scheduled to solicit feedback from students, parents, stakeholders and others about school facilities across the school district.
When & Where: Each of the five forums listed below is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.:
  • Tuesday, September 30, 2014, at Catonsville High School, 421 Bloomsbury Avenue, Catonsville, 21228
  • Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at Perry Hall High School, 4601 Ebenezer Road, Perry Hall 21236 
  • Wednesday, October 15, 2014, at Chesapeake High School, 1801 Turkey Point Road, Essex 21221
  • Thursday, October 16, 2014, at Loch Raven High School, 1212 Cowpens Avenue, Towson 21286
  • Wednesday, October  22, 2014, at New Town High School, 4931 New Town Boulevard, Owings Mills 21117
Background: As BCPS continues examining long-term planning to accommodate growth, the school system is committed to incorporating stakeholder viewpoints in its planning process. To do so, five community forums have been scheduled to gather public priorities related to the needs of both existing and future physical facilities.
