The University of Baltimore’s Early College Initiatives (ECI), in partnership with BmoreSTEM’s Math Workgroup, has expanded its Dual Enrollment offerings in math to City Schools for the Fall 2020 semester. ECI is offering Introduction to Statistics, worth 3 college credits and 4th year high school math credit, to cohorts at Benjamin Franklin HS, Green St. Academy, Western HS, Baltimore Design School, Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, and Digital Harbor HS. All courses are fully online. In total, over 150 students are enrolled in UB Dual Enrollment courses in either Math or Writing this semester.
We have heard from many of you, asking how you can help students in Baltimore get through this difficult time. BmoreSTEM, in consultation with City Schools, would like to share the following opportunities to help City Schools students:
- Donate Computers or Tablets: If you have a used, but still serviceable, device you would like to donate, DigiBmore has committed to refurbish, wipe, clean and deliver devices to City Schools students.
- Donate to the Baltimore City Public Schools Emergency School Closure Family Support Fund: The Family Support Fund was created at the request of Dr. Santelises to provide vital resources to Baltimore’s communities and schools through challenges associated with school closing and COVID-19. Donations are used to address priority needs for communities, including technology access and food insecurity. The Fund for Educational Excellence is administrating the funds in partnership with City Schools to identify needs, manage funds, and secure contributions. The difficulty and prolonged nature of this uncertain time requires bold, compassionate steps to support our neighbors and fellow Baltimore residents. Donate by clicking here.
