This summer marks a significant milestone in the 21st Century School Buildings Program as construction is set to begin on the next set of schools in the program. This event will be held at
the location of one of the construction sites, Arlington Elementary/Middle School, and will feature large architectural rendering backdrops of the other four schools (REACH! Partnership
[Fairmount-Harford building], Bay-Brook, John Ruhrah, and Calvin M. Rodwell). Students from each school will provide remarks. Attendees will have the opportunity to have their photos
taken with hardhats and shovels in front of the construction site and large architectural renderings of the other four schools.
The 21st Century School Buildings Program creates inspiring educational environments for Baltimore City and its public school students and recreational facilities for the community for
generations to come. The program is a partnership between the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA), Baltimore City Public Schools, the City of Baltimore, and the Interagency
Commission on Public School Construction (IAC). Two schools, Fort Worthington Elementary/Middle School and Frederick Elementary School, opened at the beginning of the
2017/18 school year. Lyndhurst Elementary/Middle School and Dorothy I. Height Elementary School opened to students in April 2018. Five new school buildings will open to students at the
beginning of the 2018/19 school year.
