Did you know that in the United States, primary school children spend an average of 1,096 hours in the classroom per year? High School students spend an average of between 1,232 and 1,051 hours per year in the classroom.*  Every moment is an opportunity to expand a child’s horizons and elevate their learning experiences.

This is why The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools strives to foster relationships within the community to help extend, enrich and enhance school programs beyond the allocated funding provided by BCPS.  Community partnerships provide a gateway for the future of education by sustaining new ideas and innovative programs that help prepare students to graduate globally competitive.

Have you have wondered what these new ideas and innovative programs look like?  This year, at our signature event, State of the Schools 2018, guests will see some of these outstanding programs. They will meet students, teachers, and collaborative partners behind the scenes through exhibits on the Learning Walk of Knowledge, which precedes the premier program. Featured exhibits include:

  • Tiny Houses built by students in Construction and Development Programs
  • Electric Car built by students in Manufacturing, Engineering & Technology
  • 2017 BCPS Film EXPO entries, created by students from Visual Arts, Film & Media
  • Robotics, operated by students from Advanced Technology Education
