EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

Anne Arundel County Public Schools is a district located in Annapolis, Maryland. With over 80,000 students enrolled, the AACPS school system is the 5th largest in Maryland and the 46th largest in the United States. The district has over 5,000 teachers supporting a comprehensive curriculum from Pre-K through 12th grade.

Anne Arundel County Public Schools voted to require masks for all students, regardless of vaccination status.

The district voted to mandate vaccines for all district employees and high school student-athletes, or submit to weekly testing.

In 2020, the district’s Superintendent penned a letter to the district outlining his plan to rewrite the curriculum to include “cultural literacy and sensitivity.” The curriculum will center around Educational Equity and social justice. He also wrote that the executive committee would be studying an article titled “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism.” His plan was to have this new curriculum ready for the 2021-2022 school year.

The Maryland State Education Association (MSEA) announced in January of 2021 that they will be funding Black Lives Matter Weeks in schools. The full details of this endeavor can be found here.
