Crofton Redistricting – The AACPS Board of Education is considering the following options for redistricting Crofton schools:
Approved by the Redistricting Committee, and supported by the Superintendent, this plan evenly distributes overcrowding to areas receiving capital improvements to help prevent additional redistricting of Crofton schools!
Significantly overcrowds Crofton schools, requires additional portable classrooms, $800k in major construction at Crofton Meadows, and results in additional redistricting of Crofton schools!
Significantly overcrowds Crofton schools, requires additional portable classrooms, and requires redistricting areas of Crofton Elementary to Crofton Meadows/areas of Crofton Meadows to Crofton Woods.
To avoid getting an additional 100 students in 2020 added to our school, we need to make our voices heard by telling the AACPS Board that we are for Option 1.
Please make plans to attend the March 19th Board Hearing at 6:30 p.m. at Arundel High School. All of Crofton will be wearing RED to show that we are unified in wanting Option 1 as a community. Please consider speaking on behalf of Crofton Meadows that evening as well.
The Crofton Meadows PTO will be hosting a Redistricting Rally on Thursday, March 14th at 7:00 p.m. in the CMES library to review our points for Option 1 at the Board Hearing the following week.
