      State Superintendent Karen Salmon announced on March 25, 2020 that the shutdown for all public schools in Maryland would be extended through April 24, 2020. When we receive updates regarding any further details regarding this decision, we will communicate it to AACPS families, students and employees as quickly as possible.

      NOTE: Spring Break is April 9-13, 2020. During this time there will be no food distribution at meal sites, and teachers will not be holding eLearning classes online.  Food distribution, eLearning lessons, and limited staffing of AACPS facilities will resume on Tuesday, April 14.


      During this time away, our hope is for you to remain safe and healthy. We have developed some instructional offerings for students who are able to use them during these next two weeks. AACPS eLearning educational resources

  • 3 HS Juniors Named as Finalists to be 2020-21 Student Member of the BOE

    Posted by Melvin Edwards on 4/8/2020

    The Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) announced on its Twitter page (@CRASC_Online) today that three 11th grade students have been named finalists for the 2020-2021 student member on the Board of Education of Anne Arundel County.

    The students, selected from a field of six applicants, are:

    • Conor Curran, Old Mill High School
    • Princess Merritt, Meade High School
    • Drake Smith, Meade High School

    The Student Member on the Board of Education (SMOB) election is sponsored by CRASC. The student member is appointed by the Governor, serves a one-year term during his or her senior year of high school, and receives an $8,000 college scholarship.  Anne Arundel’s student member is the only one in the nation on a local Board of Education with full voting rights.

    The election to determine the candidate whose name will be forwarded to the governor for appointment will take place later this month or early next month.

    CRASC’s constitution and bylaws call for high schools and middle schools in the county to be allotted a predetermined number of delegates, based on each school’s enrollment, at the election. Delegates will represent student government, the arts, athletics, and other extracurricular activities.
