U.S. Department of Education Awards Grant to Renaissance Academy

The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Healthy Students has awarded Baltimore City Public Schools (City Schools) a Project School Emergency Response to Violence (SERV) grant totaling $351,718. The grant will be used to assist with ongoing recovery efforts following the stabbing death of a student at Renaissance Academy, a high school on the west side of Baltimore that serves a majority of African-American males—many of whom are from vulnerable backgrounds. The SSW's Promise Heights Initiative is a partner with the school on the grant.
