School system wants the public’s help to solve crowding issue
Jon Meoli, Towson Times / Baltimore Sun Media Group
Baltimore County Public Schools officials are asking the public to help choose one of a number of plans that would address school crowding in the Towson area. The scenarios include building a new school and converting a senior center into a school. A third option would expand an existing school and reshape a magnet program to create additional seats elsewhere. Meetings have briefed residents on the ideas, and letters were scheduled to be sent home Tuesday to parents in the affected communities.
