The search for the next superintendent of Anne Arundel County's public schools has been an exercise filled with numbers. It's been nine months since Kevin Maxwell left the job for a similar post in Prince George's County, and one month since interim Superintendent Mamie Perkins announced that she wouldn't seek the permanent job. From a field of 55 applicants, 12 were invited for a round of interviews. The list was then narrowed to seven candidates who went through a second round of interviews, and from that field the school system selected three finalists who have been reviewed by a committee of 20 school, community and professional representatives.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education said last week that at least 50 people have applied for the position of superintendent. The school system closed its application deadline Monday for the vacant superintendent position and now begins the process of picking a permanent replacement for Kevin Maxwell, who left the school system in August to take a similar position in Prince George's County. Stacy Korbelak, chair of the ad hoc superintendent search committee, said the firm conducting the search, Iowa-based Ray and Associates, was expected to give the school system access to its applications database, allowing each board member to review all applications and recommend up to 12 applicants for interviews "We will meet on March 5 to narrow down the list to somewhere between six to eight applicants," Korbelak said.

The 2014 General Assembly session got underway Wednesday, turning Annapolis into the state's center of debate, protest, legislation and proclamation for the next 90 days. Legislators from Anne Arundel County are promoting bills that range from rolling back stormwater fees to legalizing refillable containers of wine. Local lawmakers also will take another crack at changing the makeup of the Anne Arundel school board - a seemingly perennial issue for the county delegation. On that front, the bill being considered is identical to one proposed last year to create a school board with seven elected members, three members appointed by the governor and one student member, said Del. Steve Schuh, a Gibson Island Republican who is chairman of the county's House delegation.

Anne Arundel County unveiled a $1.04 billion operating budget proposal on Wednesday for next fiscal year, calling for 75 new positions throughout the school system and $5.8 million to open a new contract school. Interim Superintendent Mamie Perkins outlined a budget recommendation that's $35.5 million — or 3.5 percent — above the current approved budget. That request may put Perkins at odds with the Anne Arundel County government, which school officials say will fund nearly 60 percent of the budget.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold's proposals to step up oversight of school board spending are being denounced as "unnecessary" by the county schools chief. At a county House delegation meeting Friday morning, Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell, who has long butted heads with Leopold, spoke out against the legislation and hinted that the proposals are personally motivated. School officials said the legislation would impose rules on Anne Arundel that no other school system is required to adhere to. The proposed legislation, in the form of two separate bills, is being discussed by the county's delegation, though no lawmakers have agreed to sponsor the bills.
