Boosting Proficiency in Baltimore City Public Schools

Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPSS) is an urban Title I district serving a high At-Risk student population with 84% of students from low-income families. With the changing rigor of Maryland’s College and Career Ready Standards, students in the district fell behind.

Community Learning Network #6 (CLN-6), led by Dr. Mark King, aimed to accelerate learning outcomes and boost proficiency rates on MCAP/PARCC Assessments while placing CLN-6 students on a College and Career Ready path. Additionally, the Covid-19 pandemic forced BCPSS to transition over to a 100% Remote Learning model. Dr. King and other District and School leaders were seeking ways to innovate and continue learning and driving academic growth in the face of a whole new host of challenges.
