March 4, 2010
Closings will affect about 10 percent of students attending Archdiocesan schools
From The Baltimore Sun: The Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimorewill close 13 of its 64 schools at the end of the academic year. Closing the 12 K-8 schools and one high school, all in the city of Baltimore or Baltimore County, will displace 2,152 students and 325 teachers, staff and administrators. The displaced students, who make up nearly 10 percent of the 22,700 students in the system, will be guaranteed a spot in a school no more than five miles from their existing schools; it's not clear how many employees will lose their jobs.
