The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County will be presented with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Bedell’s recommendation on the first phase of comprehensive redistricting at its next meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, July 12, 2023. The recommendation will focus on the northern part of the county as well as on creating boundaries for Old Mill West High School and West County Elementary School, which will open in the 2024-2025 school year. It is the next step in a process that kicked off in February and will culminate with the adoption of a plan by the Board in November to go into effect in August 2024.
