After a wave of criticism, Harford County schools Superintendent Barbara Canavan has announced that the ban on student travel to Baltimore City has been lifted.
In a statement, Canavan said that the district “take[s] great pride in what Baltimore City, and our entire state, has to offer our students as well as students across the country.” She said her district “will always err on the side of caution and will continue to act upon the input and information we receive from law enforcement agencies.”
The ban on student travel to Baltimore was instituted after the April riots, and reinstated at the beginning of the trials of the officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
According to Canavan, determinations on the safety of student travel destinations are made weekly. She pointed out that a ban on overseas travel was instituted following the recent Paris attacks.
