Fall 2020 Future Planning
Anne Arundel County Public Schools has formed Fall 2020 Future Planning Committees (FPCs) composed of school district personnel, community leaders, students, teachers, families, employee bargaining unit members, and stakeholders from across the county to come together to plan for Fall 2020 schooling options. Our FPCs will focus on the needs of Anne Arundel County students and families as they review information from national and international schools and organizations and guidance from the Anne Arundel County Department of Health, our County Executive, Maryland’s State School Superintendent, and Governor Larry Hogan. Maryland Together - Maryland’s Recovery Plan for Education (which is still in draft format) - will also be used to guide FPCs’ efforts. Committees will work to produce viable options for reopening school for the Fall 2020 semester. These options will be presented to the Superintendent and Board of Education for their consideration during the summer of 2020.
"Now is the time to plan for and address the eventual reopening of schools, with an understanding that the health, safety, and wellness of students, families, educators, and staff must be a priority. The Maryland Together: Recovery Plan for Education contains a wealth of information that can be used as a point of reference by school leaders, students, and school communities. Through the collective endeavors of educational leaders and stakeholders throughout the state, the future educational needs of students will be fully addressed. The most important step will be for leadership to base important decisions on data, the uniqueness of individual school systems, financial capabilities, technological capabilities, and student needs. Prior planning will set the stage for accomplishments that will be achieved throughout the school year.”
