A public hearing on the redistricting proposal for Central and Mayo elementary schools will be held by the Anne Arundel County Board of Education on April 22 at 7 p.m. in the Parham Building in Annapolis.
The redistricting proposal is essentially identical to one adopted in 2012 but is required for the board to either reaffirm or modify its 2012 plan. The hearing is required by a recent State Board of Education decision in the wake of an appeal.
At the hearing, the Board will take testimony only on the following option:
Redistrict from Central Elementary to Mayo Elementary students living along the east side of Muddy Creek Road down to and including Wolfe’s Reserve and those students living on Fiddlers Hill Road (west side of Muddy Creek Road), as well as those students living east of Muddy Creek Road and south of Central Avenue as it extends to the current boundary with Mayo Elementary, including those living in River Club Estates and along Camp Letts Road.
Should the Board adopt the above-stated plan, no students already enrolled at Central or Mayo elementary would be moved from their current school. Anyone wishing to speak at the hearing will be allotted three minutes.
Mead High design on board agenda
The Board will consider the testimony along with other information before reaching its final decision. A vote is scheduled for April 23 at the Anne Arundel County Board of Education meeting at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Board Room at the Parham Building, located at 2644 Riva Road in Annapolis.
At the April 23rd meeting, the board will also discuss and is set to approve design documents for the Meade High School open space enclosure. The $5.3 million project is scheduled to begin in September and be completed by December 2015.
