School District Communications

MSDE has identified Southwest Baltimore Charter School as one of its focus schools. Under federal law, the state under the ESEA waiver, must identify Title I schools that have large gaps in student achievement between students from specific groups. Focus schools receive extra support from the school district and state in the subject areas where the gaps occur or where students are performing below standards.

Below is a letter for our school community that explains what it means to be a focus school and the next steps the school, district and state must take to support students and improve outcomes.
