BCPS recognized for budgeting

Baltimore County Public Schools has been recognized again for Best Practices in School Budgeting by the Government Finance Officers Association, for the 14th year in a row.

“BCPS takes very seriously its obligation to use every resource responsibly on behalf of our students, staff, and communities,“ BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams said in a statement. “Fulfilling that obligation requires clarity in budget presentations. I am so proud of our Budget and Reporting staff for their expertise and dedication for producing such excellent presentations.”

Summer learning hike available through August

Baltimore County Public Schools students can access free, personalized virtual learning opportunities through the optional Summer Learning Hike program.

In the program, where no grades are assigned, students can use their student login to access the online program for their grade level.

Customized hikes are available in a variety of languages for most grade levels, including ABC Mouse for students who were enrolled in BCPS Preschool or Pre-K during the 2020-2021 school year, Raz-Plus and First in Math for students entering Grades 1-5 during the 2021-2022 school year and Apex Tutorials for students entering grades 6 through 12.

The hike is student-directed and available until Aug. 20, but teachers will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to answer questions. Students should use their student login on Google Meet, with meeting code slhbcps, to access help. For more information, visit www.bcps.org.
