The school year for Baltimore County Public Schools ended today, but BCPS made an announcement for the 2021-22 school year.
Baltimore County Public Schools announced that 15 minutes will be added to the school year next fall. BCPS did not specify if the time would be added to the beginning of the day, the end of the day or a combination of both. Here is their first release.
“BCPS is pleased to announce the school day will be expanded by an extra fifteen minutes beginning with the 2021-2022 academic year. Within this expanded day, we will provide increased instructional time for our students, the statement said.
“Specifically, elementary students will have additional mathematics instruction while our secondary students will have additional college and career readiness skills embedded throughout their day. We look forward to an exciting new school year.”
