With its homes and stores, and a new school and second community center, Seven Oaks in Odenton is just about fully built out. Its leafy streets loop into landscaped cul-de-sacs with tot lots, and its swimming pools are taking the holiday weekend to open for the season. A committee just formed to look into creating a dog park. The homeowners' association is planning its summer-kickoff barbecue for several hundred people for the first weekend in June. Children are walking from school. "It's peaceful," said longtime resident Linda Goodman, noting neighbors look out for each other.

Seven Oaks Elementary School was built two years ago, but only this week are its teachers decorating its bulletin boards and its students settling into their desks. The building, which served as a long-term way station for Meade Heights Elementary School students and staff displaced by construction at a third school, is in the rare circumstance of creating a new identity, with a new name and new blend of teachers and students. First-grade teacher Julie Hesenperger said she felt comfortable, despite - or maybe because of - her unfamiliar surroundings.

ISSUE: The Anne Arundel County school board ceded to pleas last week to allow most students from the Seven Oaks community to remain at Arundel High, a vote that some said merely delayed the tougher decision on how to solve school crowding in West County. Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell had recommended moving 344 students from Arundel High in Gambrills to Meade High at Fort Meade to ease crowding at Arundel, which has nine portable classrooms to handle the overflow. He had said he was amenable to allowing next school year's juniors and seniors from Seven Oaks to stay at Arundel.

Some Anne Arundel County school board members are calling for an overhaul of the school system's "piecemeal" year-to-year redistricting method after a battle with Odenton parents. This week, the board ceded to pleas to allow most students from the Seven Oaks community to remain at Arundel High, a vote that some said merely delayed the tougher decision on how to solve school crowding in West County. "We just diluted the issue instead of dealing with it," said school board Vice President Eugene Peterson, who voted against the measure to leave Seven Oaks children at Arundel.
