Baltimore County Board of Education passed a $1.74 billion budget plan Tuesday night, sending it to the county executive and council for final consideration. The budget plan for the 2021-22 academic year calls for adding 15 minutes to the school day, providing a 2% cost of living increase for unionized employees and hiring more teachers, counselors, social workers and healthcare providers. If approved, the board’s plan would also reallocate funds —as yet, unidentified — to increase spending per pupil and to create $175,000 for school grants for family engagement.
