ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Anne Arundel County Board of Education will host a public forum Wednesday in order to gather input in its search for a new schools superintendent.
The forum will be at the Board of Education's Parham Building, located at 2644 Riva Road in Annapolis. The meeting is a day later than originally planned due to Tuesday's inclement weather.
The forum, conducted by the search firm Ray & Associates, will be split into two segments. School system employees should attend from 5 to 6 p.m. and parents, students, and community representatives should attend from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
According to the school board, other public forums will be held at the same time on the following dates:
- Wednesday, December 11, in the cafeteria at Glen Burnie High School, 7550 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd., Glen Burnie
- Thursday, December 12, in the cafeteria at Arundel High School, 1001 Annapolis Road, Gambrills
- Thursday, December 12, in the cafeteria at Severna Park Middle School, 450 Jumpers Hole Road, Severna Park
There will also be a daytime public forum from 10 to 11 a.m. on Thursday in Center III at the Parham Building.
Anyone who cannot attend a forum is encouraged to provide input through on online questionnaire that can be found at www.aacps.org/suptsearch . That questionnaire will be open through Dec. 12. It can be filled out anonymously and is available in English, Spanish, Urdu, Korean, and Vietnamese.
Interim Superintendent Mamie J. Perkins' contract runs through June 30, 2014. The new superintendent will begin a four-year term on July 1, 2014.
