How are schools selected
How Are Schools Selected?

  • Schools are selected based on the percentage of students who qualify for free meals (not actually receive but qualify). This data is used for many grants to distribute funds.

  • At least 46% of the students attending the school are eligible for free meals. This percentage can and does change annually based on funding amount.

  • Of the 77 elementary schools in Anne Arundel County, this year there are 16 public schools who are fortunate enough to receive fund and 2 private schools.

Germantown s parent family community involvement policy
Germantown’s Parent / Family / Community Involvement Policy

Germantown Elementary School faculty and staff believe it is paramount that we build relationships with all stakeholders in order to ensure that all students are successful. We actively seek community involvement from a variety of stakeholders to provide input to the learning process at Germantown. We capitalize on this by using available resources to provide events which educate community members on various aspects of our school culture. Through this joint cooperative effort, the families of Germantown are truly the beneficiaries.
