Then and Now

The Then and Now …. The Changing Face of Education

Traditional chalkboards . . . Modern whiteboards.

Notebooks . . . Chromebooks

A classroom desk . . . A standing desk

Tradition classroom chairs . . . Stability balls to improve posture and attention

Service dogs to release stress, anxiety, and reduce panic attacks

Daily participation in the universal breakfast program

Teachers raise funds through crowdfunding to supplement the need for basic school supplies

NOW . . . COVID-19 Pandemic and the face of education continues to change.

As schools remain closed and field days, closing ceremonies, spring sports, proms and graduates not existing during this school year, the 115,000+ diverse, students, nearly 10,000 innovative teachers, and support staff and the 175 talented, highly effective school principals in every school, program, and center in Baltimore County need your support and generosity more than ever.

With your support, together, we can champion the following programs and campaigns:

RISE for a Brighter Future (Relief in Securing Education)

When we see the COVID-19 pandemic on the horizon, the next generation of leaders and global citizens will be equipped and prepared to embrace and capture the world because of you and your generous support.
