URGENT! Class Action Grievance

The Baltimore Teachers Union and the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners have reached a framework for settling a Class Action Grievance concerning a published May 1, 2014 deadline for applying for AUs for college course work completed between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2013.

If you:

  • Took college course work between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2013,
  • Applied for AUs, and
  • Were denied AUs because you submitted your course work after May 1, 2014, or
  • Took college course work between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2013 and did not apply for AUs because of a published May 1, 2014 deadline

You may be a member of the class covered by the grievance and may be eligible to have your AUs credited retroactively to the date you first submitted the course work for AUs.

In order to be considered a member of the class covered by the grievance, you must send an email

by no later than Friday, March 25, 2016, to:

 btuclassactiongrievance@gmail.com

  The email must include:
