The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County will review, discuss, and vote on feasibility studies for three schools in need of renovation or replacement at its next meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, October 19, 2016, in the Board Room at the Parham Building, 2644 Riva Road, Annapolis.
The Board will review studies for Edgewater, Tyler Heights, and Richard Henry Lee elementary schools. The studies were developed with the help of a committee that included school staff, parents, and community partners. They examined the costs and other factors in five different scenarios, from doing nothing to constructing a new school. The Board will vote on a course of action for each of the three schools.
The Board will meet at 8:00 a.m. to vote to go into closed session, during which time it will discuss confidential matters as permitted by the Maryland Open Meetings Act including, but not limited to, legal advice, personnel, and negotiations. Closed session is not open to the public. The general session of the meeting, which is open to the public, will begin at 10:00 a.m.
