City schools offer back-to-school center

August 22, 2005

The Baltimore City public school system will operate a back-to-school "command center" at its headquarters today to Sept. 2 to respond to questions from parents and guardians about issues such as registration, immunization, school assignments, transfers and transportation.

The command center, in the Alice G. Pinderhughes Administration Building at 200 E. North Ave., is in its third year of operation. During each of the first two years, the staff responded to about 1,000 calls.

"With rare exception, one call to the command center puts a parent or guardian in touch with a ... staff person who can provide a quick response to a question or concern," Bonnie S. Copeland, the school system's chief executive officer, said in a statement.

To reach the center, call 443-984-1177 or 443-984-1178.
