AACPS.net was a blog focusing on coverage of the Anne Arundel County Public Schools; specifically its core democratic institutions: the Anne Arundel County School Board Nominating Commission and Anne Arundel Countywide Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). Its posts were primarily published on the Countywide CAC and Severna Park CAC listservs. They were intended to be informal, quickly drafted posts, not polished articles.
In early 2011, AACPS dismantled the CAC as a bottom up organization. In the course of turning it into a mouthpiece for the superintendent and Board of Education, it aggressively clamped down on the CAC as a forum for parents to express their thoughts about the school system.
AACPS.net was replaced by coverage in various local news outlets such as the Baltimore Sun, Capital, EyeOnAnnapolis.net, Patch, and Washington Post. That coverage has been archived here at eLighthouse.info.
