Intersection of Neighborhood Development and Student Achievement

Intersection of Neighborhood Development and Student Achievement

Tuesday, December 13, 2016, 9:30 - 11:00 AM

Join us on December 13th to hear from Cheryl Knott of the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance (BNIA) as they overlay data as it relates to School Centered Neighborhood Investment (SCNI) and student outcomes for Baltimore City children. We will look at data from the SCNI focus neighborhoods: Park Heights (near Sinai Hospital), Southwest Baltimore (near Bon Secours Hospital), Reservoir Hill and Cherry Hill and consider how vacancies and development efforts have impacted student outcomes.

This program is hosted by Maryland Philanthropy Network's School Centered Neighborhood Investment Initiative and the Education Affinity Group.  

The School Centered Neighborhood Investment Initiative (SCNII) was established in order to leverage the historic investment of the $1.1 billion 21st Century buildings program and to strategically align resources that can support neighborhood revitalization and community development goals.  Maryland Philanthropy Network, through its Neighborhood and Community Development Funders Affinity Group, implements the SCNII in collaboration with the Baltimore City Department of Planning, Maryland DHCD, Baltimore City Schools and the Family League of Baltimore. The initiative is designed to spur private investment in neighborhood revitalization, to increase the capacity of community based organizations to leverage physical development within communities that are currently planning for new or renovated school buildings and improve the lives of families in target areas.

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members only.
