A Year in Review ANNUAL REPORT 2020-2021


PROLOGUE In March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic required us all to quarantine at home, and schools around the globe had to abruptly shift to virtual learning, we were challenged to explore how the delivery of the BSA mission could persevere beyond the bounds of our physical campus. Through innovative thinking, careful planning, and a commitment to our students and families, BSA quickly pivoted to meet the unique challenges posed by the pandemic. Our teachers and educational leaders gathered to brainstorm how to continue to deliver a mission-driven student experience through digital platforms and to create a response plan that would allow students to safely return to on-campus learning. Once the students were able to start returning to campus in March 2021, BSA employed a wide variety of mitigation strategies to keep faculty, staff, and students safe. From daily temperature checks to the utilization of face masks and small class cohorts, keeping our community risk as low as possible was an effort supported by everyone. The partnership and shared responsibility across our faculty, staff, parents, and teachers has served as a true testament to the strength of our community. As we are planning for the second school year affected by COVID-19, BSA has much to be proud of. While these have been times like no other, our students have continued to grow, learn, and thrive under the steadfast care of our faculty and staff.


INNOVATIVE THINKING, CAREFUL PLANNING, AND A COMMITMENT TO OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES

Members of the BSA Chorus, led by Dr. Mark Hardy, sang the national anthem ahead of the Baltimore Ravens November 1st game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. BSA has performed the national anthem in previous seasons, including last year’s playoff game, but this time felt particularly special as it was the first opportunity the students had to sing together and in person (while safely distanced) since BSA’s Expressions in March 2020.

Internationally recognized playwright and theatre maker, Nilo Cruz, joined Acting and Stage Design & Production seniors as a guest artist in their Experimental Theatre Lab. For two weeks, Nilo explored creating original theatre, sourcing inspiration from unique sources, and sharing wisdom learned throughout his award winning career.

and conversation. It was a fitting event to kick off our Giving Tuesday campaign on December 1st. We not only raised $25,000, a record for us, but also counted hundreds of connections made on social media. We were blown away by the day’s results and the generosity of our community.

The Dance Department virtually hosted a Winter Dance Concert that was livestreamed on December 17 & December 19, 2020, choreographed by four guest choreographers throughout the month of October: Maleek Washington, Janice Rosario, Kameron Saunders, and Da’Shown Rawl ‘14. Their new works, created in collaboration with students from BSA’s very own Film & Visual Storytelling Department, explored the value of education, navigating the chaos of these times, forging new identities, and discovering the superhero within. >>

We hosted the first virtual event in our Creative Connections in Concert Series on November 30th, featuring world renowned saxophonist, and BSA alum, Antonio Hart ‘86. Antonio was joined by a trio of BSA musicians Ebban Dorsey ‘22 and Ephraim Dorsey ‘21, and BSA Jazz Director Ed Hrybyk ‘06. It was a noteworthy occasion as current students, alums, and former Director Chris Ford (who is also a former music department head) connected for an evening of jazz

BSA’s Black Student Union collaborated with faculty, alumni, and community partners to offer a series of virtual events in honor of Black History Month. Activities included the film screening of Louder Than a Bomb, and culminated with a fully student produced Black History Month Showcase on February 24th.

Mountainfilm uses the power of film, art, and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world. Once again, they brought their tour to BSA. Each month, as part of Lab Wednesdays, students had the opportunity to watch a selection of short films followed by a discussion and Q&A with an invited guest filmmaker. The monthly series concluded on March 24, 2021 with a virtual community screening that was open to Baltimore residents.

TWIGS Auditions for the 2021-22 school year were held virtually from May 17-22. A total of 270 new students auditioned for the 2021-22 program year. In 2020-21, TWIGS served 500 Baltimore City elementary and middle school students. These students were very committed, as reflected in our retention and attendance outcomes:

13 TWIGS retained 72% of its students from the 2019-20 program year, and saw 94% of those students continue in the program through the spring, with an average weekly attendance rate of 88%—well above our target of 85%.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION REPORT Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) was a major focus of our work during the 2020-21 school year. Our efforts included workshops, special guest speakers, cultural events, student poetry writing workshop with award-winning slam poets Lady Brion & Kenneth Something (founders of the Official Black Arts District), and training opportunities. The work was challenging, but students and staff participated in a robust way. Despite being virtual, we were able to keep the community connected and curious about cultural DEI. The goals of our work included:

• Including all BSA stakeholders • Engaging in activities that are deeply personal • Skill-building and training opportunities • Education and awareness of various cultures We were able to meet many of these goals through consistent planning and implementation within our school community. We had inspiring guest speakers, challenging conversations, and cultural celebrations. Students, staff, parents, alumni, and board members all engaged and supported this work throughout the school year.

Fall highlights:

One area of improvement for our work this year is increased focus on surveys and feedback. We did not do as well as we could with gathering feedback following each session. We can also keep better track of data for each session. We are excited to hire a part-time DEI coordinator for the 2021-22 school year. We will also add sexual assault and sexual harassment training this year for students and faculty, starting the first week of school. This training will start the first week of school.

EQUITY WORK Poetry writing exercise with alum Josh Campbell '07 was success. A small group of student leaders also worked with Roz Cauthen to create & produce BSA's first ever Open Mic. Lerman/Thomas workshop was thought provoking one, with positive feedback from the staff, continued requests to take a deeper dive into BSA's curriculum. Workshop with Randy Green of Sage Wellness has encouraged us to institute more restorative justice practices within the BSA community.

After the summer of civil unrest in 2020 and our greater emphasis on racial equity and inclusion at BSA, the Investment Committee decided to invest some of BSA's assets in alignment with the school's commitment to equity. The committee researched the possibilities within passive investment strategy, and they voted to carve out $1 million of the assets to be invested in the iShares ESG Award USA Index Fund. This fund seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of U.S. companies that have positive environmental, social, and governance characteristics.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE BSA We are incredibly grateful to all of our amazing donors and friends of the BSA! Below are the names of donors who contributed to the Baltimore School For the Arts Foundation during the 2020-21 fiscal year.

ENDOWED FUND FOR THE FUTURE In recent years, the increasing pressure on public funding and competition for available money prompted BSA founder Mark Joseph and his wife Patricia, lead donors to BSA, to establish the Endowed Fund for the Future with a $1,000,000 endowment challenge and a total goal of $10,000,000. In 2017, the Josephs generously stepped forward again with a $3,000,000 endowment gift to help endow the school’s newest discipline in film and visual storytelling. This donation established The Charles C. Baum & Visual Storytelling Department, in memory of Mark and Patricia Joseph’s dear friend, Charles C. Baum. Through this program BSA will impact an additional 60 students in the high school and 20 students in TWIGS through digital media. The goal for The Fund for the Future, which includes a $5,000,000 film endowment, is $15,000,000. Under the extraordinary leadership of Campaign Chair David Nelson, a total of $12,367,000 has been secured to date in gifts and pledges. Our generous contributors to the Fund for the Future are listed below.
