A state judge is recommending that the 1995 Anne Arundel County school redistricting plan -- a document that is the basis for last year's redistricting and the basis of proposals for redrawing school attendance areas this spring -- be overturned.Administrative Law Judge Georgia B. Powell based her recommendation on the contentious switch of the Seven Oaks community from the Arundel feeder system to Meade, which she said made no sense. A feeder system is the set of elementary and middle schools whose students are funneled to a particular senior high school.

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.
