Through the application process, each school selected a 21st century theme that was aligned with BCPS goals for academics and key actions as stated in the BCPS Blueprint 2.0:  Our Way Forward and the school progress plans.  The project needed to include plans for an educational enrichment community event in order to strengthen community partnerships and increase a commitment from parents and teachers through a collaborative and strategic process.

The principal and the 21st Century Grant Liaison from each of the award winning schools will attend a grant orientation on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, from 9– 11 a.m., at Hot Spots Headquarters (1306 Bellona Avenue, Lutherville, Maryland 21093),
