Baltimore City Schools has programs for students identified as emotionally disturbed and who need intense behavioral supports and therapy in order to be successful in their Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). Classes have a pupil/staff ratio of 10/2 with behavioral supports provided by a classroom teacher, social worker, psychologist and other assigned staff. Each program provides the appropriate therapy, instruction and behavioral supports necessary to meet each student's individual needs.
The staff assigned to work with our ED programs assists school-based administration in opening, organizing, and maintaining effective programs. Ongoing support is provided through site visits and training sessions.
