The very best thing you can do to support Annapolis Middle School and AACPS is to advocate for staffing through the County Council. The County Executive has released his budget which is extremely supportive of our needs, including increased mental health and special education support.
The AACPS website includes timelines and useful information https://www.aacps.org/domain/335. Also, a document detailing the impact of County Executive Steuart Pittman’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget proposal on Anne Arundel County Public Schools is now online at www.aacps.org/fy20budgetimpact. Complete details of the FY2020 budget process can be found at www.aacps.org/fy2020budget.
If you wish to share your views on the budget and the needs of our schools, you can email your representative on the County Council:
District 1 – Sarah Lacey firstname.lastname@example.org
District 2 – Allison Pickard email@example.com
District 3 – Nathan Volke firstname.lastname@example.org

District 5 – Amanda Fiedler firstname.lastname@example.org

Once the budget is finalized (June 15th), the Office of School Performance will analyze enrollment numbers and needs across the system, and the school system will allocate positions based on need.
