ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — The Anne Arundel County Board of Education will host two special virtual meetings next week to talk about options for bringing students and teachers back into the classroom.

On Monday, Superintendent George Arlotto is set to outline the school system’s hybrid reopening plan at a meeting that will start at 5 p.m.


The following day, the board will hear about two plans focused on getting high school athletes back on the field, the school system said.

Last week, Gov. Larry Hogan and state schools Superintendent Karen Salmon announced high school sports could resume on October 7. Anne Arundel County would start later than that date since rules require 20 days between the first day of practice and the first competition, officials said.

The school board’s normal meeting scheduled for Wednesday is set to continue as planned.
