So why must Anne Arundel County spend $14.4 million to build a new Davidsonville Elementary School, when other counties are building schools for about half the price?Some of the extra cost is in the site.Building the 600-student school at Central Avenue and Queen Anne Bridge Road would require major road improvements to allow separate bus and car lanes as well as a traffic signal. Total cost: $200,000.Because public water is not available, the builder would have to dig a well and install water treatment, septic and underground sprinkler systems.

Anne Arundel County began the local school year Monday, with students and parents sharing some excitement — and a bit of nervousness. The county's first- through fifth-, sixth- and ninth-grade students marked the opening wave of what county school officials say is a record enrollment: more than 75,500. Most of Anne Arundel's remaining students will return Tuesday , including those at more than a dozen campuses that had delayed starts because of construction. "I'm looking to do better in school than I did last year," said Tyrek Thornton of Glen Burnie, who is entering the sixth grade at Corkran Middle School in Glen Burnie.
