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.

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.

Mother Nature has made her presence felt this year in Anne Arundel County. Storms in February dropped 2 feet of snow, cutting power to thousands of homes.
