Anne Arundel Schools request raises eyebrows Even as county leaders brace for dwindling county and state revenues, the Anne Arundel County Board of Education is asking for $189 million for school construction and renovations, nearly $60 million more than the County Council funded last year. The school system's request sets the stage for another fiscal struggle with the county government and is virtually certain to result in substantial cuts, considering that next year's financial forecast is gloomier than the one the county wrangled with last spring, two council members told the board at a meeting last week.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education has voted to become one of the first school boards in Maryland to post copious meeting documents on the Internet. The 7-1 decision last week means that the board will adopt BoardDocs, a program it has been testing since the summer. Board President Paul G. Rudolph voted against continuing the service, which he has said is inconvenient and might turn out to be too costly. It costs $650 a month to subscribe, and the school system paid about $22,000 in startup costs.

This week, board member Michael McNelly questioned the school system's granting of a $395,000 contract to the Florida-based National Institute for School and Workplace Safety for a safety assessment of the county's 117 schools. School officials said they did not seek board approval because it wasn't required.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education voted yesterday against renewing a $1.4 million contract with a Crofton employment firm after some school board members balked at using the company to rehire retired administrators. Board members, some of whom said they were unaware of the 13-year-old arrangement with Human Recources Inc., criticized it - even without the inclusion of the administrators - as too expensive and possibly unnecessary. Eugene Peterson, board vice president, said he did not understand why permanent employees could not be hired through the traditional mode of advertising the jobs.

The local branch of the NAACP has called on the Anne Arundel County Board of Education to put together an affirmative action plan to increase what it called an "appalling" number of minority teachers and administrators. Gerald Stansbury, Anne Arundel chapter president, decried the results of an internal school system study, which found that African-Americans and Latinos make up 8 percent of the teachers and 1 percent of administrators, while nearly 25 percent of the student population falls into one of those racial groups.

Gary has decided to throw a fit.He has instructed planners to tighten approvals for residential subdivisions in communities with crowded schools: Yeah, that'll show the school board.Approving subdivisions in areas where the schools can accommodate more students, and denying them where they can't, should be a given. County planners have been following that practice -- to a degree.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education started examining yesterday whether to leap into the television age - something half of Maryland's school boards have done. School officials presented to the board three ways it could record and broadcast the twice-a-month sessions on the county's cable channel. The methods vary from a $7,500 system with a manually operated camera to a $100,000 system with stage lighting and three remote-controlled cameras. All other school boards in the Baltimore region televise their meetings.
