Baltimore County to Consider ‘Learning Hub Centers’ for Students

Baltimore County is considering a plan to establish learning support centers for certain students during the virtual fall semester.

Baltimore County issued a request for information in order to understand the costs of providing a space for students whose parents are unable to stay home with them during the school day. Although there is nothing set in stone, the centers would host children in kindergarten to sixth grade from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the fall (and potentially the spring) semester of school.

In the request for information, the county is looking for data from child care experts on if these centers could provide the necessities for children to learn – such as recreational activities, meals, transportation, and supervision for remote learning – as well as how much it would cost.

The request for information closed on August 13 and is now being reviewed.
