In an effort to address and provide information on topics of concern to residents across the county, Anne Arundel County Public Schools will host six “Summer Series” sessions beginning next week.
The one-hour sessions are designed to allow parents, students, staff members, and the public at large to hear about key issues and engage with school system staff to receive answers to questions they may have. They will run from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Board Room of the Parham Building, located at 2644 Riva Road in Annapolis.
The first session, to be held July 10, will focus on student transportation. That session will include a discussion of expanded walking areas for Central and Severna Park middle school students, which parents were notified of in June.
Other sessions are scheduled as follows:
- July 17: Student Code of Conduct
- July 24: Social, Emotional, and Physical Support of Students
- July 31: Programs of Choice and Alternative Education
- 7: Curriculum and Instruction
- 14: School Security
“It is our hope that these events will lead to a more universal understanding regarding these topics, and answer questions in a relaxed setting at a time when the pressures of an ongoing school year are not as great,” Superintendent George Arlotto said.
The sessions will be recorded on posted on the school system’s website so that those who cannot attend will be able to view at their leisure.
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
