Origin of Charter Schools/Board Policy
Title 9 - The Maryland Public Charter School Program, provides for public charter schools in Maryland. The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County adopted a public charter schools policy in October 2003 and revised the policy in May of 2010. A regulation was also established in 2010.
The Board of Education must establish criteria to consider proposals for public charter schools and procedures for overseeing approved public charter schools to provide Anne Arundel County parents and students with an alternative opportunity for additional innovative learning opportunities and creative educational approaches to improve the education of students.
