School Colors / Fund for Educational Excellence

Chronic absence has soared in Baltimore City Public Schools, with nearly 40% of students missing 18 or more days of school. Lacking required uniforms is a key reason that some students miss school. In 2019-20, School Colors will serve 28 Baltimore City Elementary/Middle Community Schools, partnering with Community School Coordinators to assess the need/sizes for school uniforms, provide uniforms at no cost to students, and monitor the distribution/impact of uniforms throughout the school year. With "Uniform Closets" in each of the schools, School Colors expects to provide more than 4,500 uniforms, improving attendance as a result.
