Welcome to Start School Later Anne Arundel County, MD!
The AACPS Board of Education is meeting on February 18, 2015 to approve their budget. Email the BoE to encourage them to fund bus routing software for the 2015-2016 school year and to make healthy school start times a fiscal responsibility.
Our 12 local high schools now start at 7:17 a.m. (the earliest start time in the state of Maryland, and one of the earliest in the country) and end at 2:05 p.m. Various groups of parent and other activists have been working to change these hours since the late 1990s.
Ensuring healthy school hours for the children in this county will depend on local as well as state and national efforts.

5:30 AM Bus? It's True!
Some county high school students have bus pick-ups as early as 5:30 am this year - and they are expected to be at the bus stop 10 minutes earlier (5:20 AM).
