AACPS takes pass on Broadneck redistricting

| January 28, 2017
Rams Head

The Board of Education today declined to move any options to redistrict Broadneck and Cape St. Claire elementary schools forward to public hearing, ending the process begun by a citizen committee several months ago.

The committee had studied options available to alleviate, to the extent possible, overcrowding at Broadneck Elementary School, which is currently over capacity. Cape St. Claire Elementary School, conversely, is under capacity.

The committee authored a report and forwarded it to Superintendent George Arlotto, who made a recommendation to the Board in December.

By 5-4 votes, the Board refused to move Option B and Option D as arrived at by the committee, to public hearing. Dr. Arlotto recommended Option B to the Board. The Board today also did not vote on Options A or C. Option A, the preferred choice of the committee, would have moved no students. Options B, C, and D would have moved between 69 and 96 students from Broadneck Elementary School to Cape St. Claire Elementary School.
