Anne Arundel County Public Schools' Website Tops In State

 

The following information was sent to us by Bob Mosier:

 

For the second consecutive year, Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ website is atop the state in terms of the documents it makes readily available 

to the public, according to an examination of governmental websites by Sunshine Review. AACPS’ website, www.aacps.org, received one of two A+ ratings in Maryland. Howard County Public Schools received the other, with the Maryland and Allegany County government sites receiving grades of A-. The agencies were four of 214 across the nation to receive Sunny Awards.  The evaluation is done by the editors of Sunshine Review, a not-for- profit group that collects and shares information about state and local 

government transparency. It reviewed more than 6,000 government websites to see whether information related to ten categories is posted: taxes, budget, meetings, elected officials, administrative officials, contracts, audits, information on a public records policy, academics, and background checks. 

Sunshine Review found AACPS content for all ten categories, the most of any school system.
