The 21st Century School Buildings Program will provide jobs, contracts, and training opportunities for the next several years.
The framework for the plan includes a committment to provide outreach in order to enhance the State of Maryland's goals for minority-business participation and the City of Baltimore's objective to employ as many city residents as possible. A collaborative group including the city, the school board, and the Maryland Stadium Authority meet regularly to develop and administer the workforce development program.
This is a significant, multi-faceted undertaking that will touch numerous Baltimore schools, whether a replacement school or a major renovation, in many cases including a complete demolition and reconstruction. Job seekers, contractors, and students are needed with talent, skills, and experience to join us in this ambitious initiative.
