What do students in traditional schools get out of this plan? One of the most promising efforts underway to support all students is the Family League of Baltimore's Community Schools initiative. The work of the American Federation of Teachers, the local Baltimore Teacher's Union, and advocacy groups such as the ACLU of Maryland to expand this effective programming is taking root. Currently, there are 52 community schools in the city school system serving 24,000 students. Wrap-around services for neighborhood schools, including after-school academic and extracurricular programming, mental health services and food pantries, are showing great results in improving achievement and putting our students on the path to college and productive careers. Under this two-year plan, the community schools initiative will receive an amount equal to the additional funding provided to charter schools; $3 million a year would provide enough money for the Family League to add about 15 more schools. Thus, costs associated with additional support for Community Schools over two years total $6 million.
