The lieutenant governor was joined by Baltimore City Mayor Catherine Pugh, students and teachers, and other local officials.
“Today, I’m pleased to be here to help kick things off at Pimlico Elementary/Middle School, which is the first of a grand total of five ribbon cuttings this week for newly modernized schools all across Baltimore City,” said Lt. Governor Rutherford. “Since day one, education has been our administration’s top priority, and we have invested a record $25 billion in K-12 education and a record $1.4 billion in school construction funding.”
The 21st Century School Buildings Program is currently underway to provide Baltimore City children with the healthy, safe, efficient, and modern school buildings they deserve. New and renovated school buildings will support excellence in teaching and learning with flexible and adaptable spaces, learning areas designed for interaction and collaboration, technology-equipped classrooms, and shared community spaces that will enrich the schools’ neighborhoods. The program is a partnership between the Maryland Stadium Authority, Baltimore City Public Schools, the City of Baltimore, and the Interagency Committee on Public School Construction.
