Dundalk's high school deteriorated during the past two decades just as the community's once-bustling steel mill declined. From the school's top floor, you could see the Key Bridge and the detritus of a shuttered industrial past. Inside, the school mirrored the dilapidation. The windows had clouded over, no air conditioning meant classroom temperatures would soar, and the roof leaked so badly that large garbage cans were strategically placed during storms to catch water dripping through the ceiling.

Dundalk High School junior Kayla Hylock opened a savings account during her lunch period two weeks ago. And she didn't have to leave school to do it. Dundalk High and First Financial Federal Credit Union of Maryland have teamed up to start what they and trade association officials call the first student-operated credit union in the Baltimore area. The Owl Branch opened Oct. 3 for students and staff in the cafeteria. It's a way for Dundalk High to address the low financial literacy of young people, something other schools are doing by adding personal finance courses.

The ball leaps off the bat, kicks up dust and bounds toward right field, a sure hit. Tom Coffin reckons not. The second baseman glides left, gloves the ball cleanly and throws the runner out. Coffin's teammates on the Colt .45s explode. "Woo-hoo!" "Way to go, Mr. Tom!" "You showboat, you!" Why the fuss? Coffin, a great-grandfather, is 73. It's Sunday morning in Dundalk and, on the American Legion baseball field, geezers like Coffin are feeling their oats. Once a week, nearly 150 players - from middle-aged men who still cherish the game to 70-somethings who inspire the rest - compete in the 10-team Eastern Baltimore County Over 40 Baseball League.

Baltimore County schools dealt with reported threats on three separate campuses Thursday morning, as officials worked to quash rumors and assure parents their children are safe. The schools were not placed on lock down and all the rumors proved to be unfounded, officials said. "It appears at this point that a flurry of rumors is circulating on social media," said Charles Herndon, county schools spokesman. "People are understandably on edge because of recent events and these threats are really playing on people's nerves.

For years, they've gathered every weekend on a grassy field in Dundalk to play tackle football. A gang of spirited, blue-collar twentysomethings, they shake hands, choose sides and, for three hours, wale the tar out of each other. So, when they heard about the first Baltimore Flag Football Festival on Saturday — an all-day, round-robin tournament at Pimlico Race Course promising $1,200 to the winner — the crew from Dundalk signed on. After all, how hard could the flag game be, once you're used to playing tackle?

By the time most other high schools began their ritual end-of-summer awakening, the teachers at Dundalk were already a week on the job, clustered in the stuffy classrooms of a tired school that so many others had written off as a lost cause. As the English department chair started up a flight of stairs, clutching a stack of results that revealed signs of progress, she stopped to share her frustration: How, after all the changes that had been made, did only about half the 10th-graders pass the state test on the first try?

Baltimore County schools officials have developed a plan to improve student achievement and the graduation rate at Dundalk High School that includes replacing some school staff, fostering community ties and switching to a six-period day of classes. "It's all about moving our kids forward," said Tom Shouldice, principal of the high school since July, of what is officially called an "alternative governance plan." The plan, which the school board is to consider tonight, is part of a requisite process for schools that have repeatedly failed to meet benchmarks known as adequate yearly progress, or AYP. Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, states must annually identify schools and school systems that miss the benchmarks.

Christina Heagy's mom dropped out of school at 16. She manages a local KFC. Her dad didn't finish school either. He works two jobs now. Her 21-year-old brother skipped college and headed for the National Guard. His girlfriend had a baby the day after Christmas. For most of her 17 years, Heagy didn't know anyone who went to college. Then she met G. Scott Kilpatrick. He's the guidance counselor whose job is to manage the futures of 300 high school seniors at Dundalk High School. It's not a place where many students have followed high school with a taste of college, or where Kilpatrick's spiel on deadlines for SATs and financial aid has meant much.
