As the Board of Education prepares to consider final adoption of Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ new five-year Strategic Plan next month, the school system is turning to parents, students, employees, and community members one more time for input.
A draft of the plan is posted online at www.aacps.org/strategicplan2018, along with a link for feedback on the values, strategies, and metrics that will be used to guide the school system over the next five years.
AACPS gathered input from a bevy of constituent groups over the last year, including at four public forums, to help fashion the plan. The Board reviewed the plan and provided further input at its December 6, 2017, meeting.
Feedback can be left through a link on the website through noon on February 5, 2018. All feedback will be provided to Board members.
The Board is expected to consider the plan again at its February 7, 2018, meeting.
The pages featuring information on the Strategic Plan can be translated into a number of languages by using the Google Translate button on the top right of the website.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
