UPDATE: Network security and use of computers 

Effective immediately, staff and students may now use their personal devices to access virtual learning and other tools. We ask all users to continue to avoid using Baltimore County schools devices to access City Schools resources. You may use asynchronous online platforms that we know are secure, such as iReady, Imagine Math, Amplify online, etc. 

We also ask all users to avoid opening emails from suspicious sources. For security, we have blocked all emails coming from Baltimore County, and ITD is monitoring all incoming emails for suspicious messages. If you receive a suspicious email, do not open it and report the occurrence to cityschoolsphish@bcps.k12.md.us.

Board Policies and Administrative Regulations

State law provides that the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners, with the advice of the CEO, determines the district's educational, management, maintenance, and operational policies. Policies are aligned with the Board's mission and goals, as well as with applicable federal and state laws. Administrative regulations guide how policies are implemented. Adopted policies are available on BoardDocs, the Board's governance website.

Policy development is a step-by-step process designed to be comprehensive, consistent, and open:

  1. Policy language is drafted and revised by staff with stakeholder input.
  2. Proposed policy language is presented to the Board's Policy Committee.
  3. Public comment is accepted for 30 days after the presentation, with staff members compiling a list of issues raised.
  4. 1st reader: Policy language is presented to the Board of School Commissioners, along with recommendations from the Policy Committee and a summary of the public comment received.
  5. A public forum or work session may be held to discuss the policy language.
  6. 2nd reader: Policy language is presented to the Board of School Commissioners, along with recommendations from the Board.
  7. The Board votes on the policy.

(Note that the Board may alter or suspend these procedures with a majority vote.)
