Baltimore charter schools accuse district of unlawfully withholding funds

February 9, 2023

Seven charter school operators are accusing the Baltimore City Public Schools system of unlawfully withholding a portion of state funding and are asking the state to intervene. But the system says those charter schools simply don’t want to pull their own weight when paying for students with disabilities. Afya Baltimore Inc., Baltimore Montessori Inc., City Neighbors, KIPP Baltimore Inc., Patterson Park Public Charter School Inc., New Song Community Learning Center and Living Classrooms Foundation petitioned the Maryland State Department of Education on Monday for a declaratory judgement to resolve the legal dispute.
