Anne Arundel County School Board Adopts $1B Budget

As reported in the Baltimore Sun, the Anne Arundel County school board Wednesday adopted a $1.02 billion operating budget for the next fiscal year that includes funding for employee pay increases and the money to open a new contract school. As described,

The board unanimously adopted the operating budget, which falls shy of the $1.04 billion proposal that interim superintendent Mamie Perkins offered in December.

That plan recommended the addition of 75 positions across the system and $5.8 million to open the Monarch Global Academy Public Contract School in Laurel to ease overcrowding at Brock Bridge, Jessup and Maryland City elementary schools.
