BOARD OF EDUCATION TO TAKE PUBLIC COMMENT ON ANNAPOLIS PENINSULA REDISTRICTING PLAN AT APRIL 3 HEARING

The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County will take public comment on Superintendent George Arlotto’s recommended plan to redistrict schools in the Annapolis cluster at a public hearing on April 3, 2017. The hearing will begin at 6 p.m. in the auditorium at Annapolis High School, located at 2700 Riva Road in Annapolis.

The plan recommended by Dr. Arlotto and now before the Board, essentially consists of three separate parts:

  • Altering the boundaries of elementary schools in the Annapolis cluster in the 2017-2018 school year.
  • Shifting Mills-Parole Elementary School to feed into Annapolis Middle School in the 2017-2018 school year.
  • Moving students from two neighborhoods north of the Severn River from Annapolis Elementary School to Arnold Elementary School, as well as some students from Germantown Elementary School to Annapolis Elementary School, in the 2019-2020 school year.

The complete plan and other materials related to the redistricting process can be found here.

Speakers may testify only on the plan currently before the Board at the hearing. Speakers will be limited to 3 minutes, and can sign up beginning at 5 p.m.

The Board is scheduled to vote on a final redistricting plan on April 19, 2017. No public testimony about the plan will be taken at the April 19 meeting.
