Plan to Replace Severna Park High School is Approved

The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County unanimously approved a plan to replace the current Severna Park High School facility with a new $99 million building that would take 3½ years to complete.

The proposal is identical to that recommended by Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell and by a large planning committee made up of school and community members. It would place the school along Benfield Road, beginning where the athletic stadium is located and extended back along the current property. The stadium would be relocated along Robinson Road.

The project would cost about $5 million less than a second replacement plan that would have preserved the current athletic stadium but taken approximately four years to build.

The new building would be 333,700 square feet, nearly 38,000 square feet larger than the current facility, which was built in 1959 and renovated in 1973 and 1982. There are more than 1,900 students enrolled at the school, which earlier this year was named the county’s 14th Maryland Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.

The Board of Education has requested $3.58 million in the Fiscal Year 2012 budget to design the school. If the project is fully funded by the county as laid out in the school system’s six-year capital program, the new building would open in 2015.
