Schools CEO Recommends Closing Five Schools in Baltimore City

Factors include enrollment, academic performance, and use of the school buildings.

The Baltimore City Schools CEO recently recommended closing two high schools, one elementary school, and two charter schools in the district, according the the Baltimore Sun.

As reported in the Baltimore Sun,

Such recommendations are made annually, based on factors such as academic performance, enrollment and, in recent years, whether a building is being utilized enough to keep it open.

Thornton’s recommendations will be the subject of public hearings in coming months. The school board will vote in January on whether to accept them.
