Surplus Schools

As part of the 21st Century Schools Initiative Memorandum of Understanding, Baltimore City Schools are required to surplus 26 school buildings.  The properties are all owned by the Mayor and City Council and therefore they are authorized to determine the re-use of each site.  The City is conducting engagement with stakeholders to explore opportunities for re-use, including community desires and concerns.  Re-use opportunities include City agency and other government use, private re-use of the building (sale or lease), temporary uses, shared uses, and demolition (open space or clearance for new construction).
