Baltimore County educator unions file legal challenge against school district over medical accommodations

March 4, 2021

Unions representing Baltimore County teachers and support personnel are asking a court for a temporary restraining order and injunction against the public school board, alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Teachers Association of Baltimore County and the Education Support Personnel of Baltimore County filed the complaint Feb. 26 in Baltimore County Circuit Court. The unions contend school system leaders instructed staff to return to school buildings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but refused to consider telework requests from those with underlying medical conditions.
