Greetings Baltimore School for The Arts Community,
This letter is a follow-up to our recent communication regarding social media posts shared by the BSA community. I am inviting the entire BSA community, including past, current and incoming students and families, to a meeting that will be held on Tuesday, April 20th from 5 PM to 6 PM, using the Zoom link provided at the end of this correspondence. I will be hosting the meeting along with other district level staff district staff.
During this meeting, updates will be provided pertaining to City Schools’ most recent actions taken to address the allegations, including:
As a reminder, counseling sessions for current BSA students are available via telehealth. Students who wish to speak privately with a clinician and/or receive referrals to additional community mental health and other resources can confidentially request an individual session by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This email will be monitored by district level clinical managers until Friday, April 23, 2021.
Recent graduates (within the last 1-2 years) can access supports by contacting Expanded School Mental Health provider at email@example.com.
As a school and district community, we prioritize the safety and emotional health of all of our students. Further, and we remain committed to ensuring a safe and supportive school learning environments that nurture young people’s potential and enable them to flourish.
As shared in the previous communication, if students have any information about these or any other incidents, or if any student has experienced sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, they should report immediately. Students or their parents/guardians may submit a report directly to their school administration. Alternatively, they may use the online bullying, harassment, and intimidation form, available at this link: https://www.baltimorecityschools.org/bullying. Or they may report directly to City Schools’ EEO Manager and Title IX Coordinator by phone at 410-396-8542, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
