Brooklyn Park School District

Brooklyn Park Public Schools operate within school districts which are separate entities responsible for administering Public Schools. Brooklyn Park school districts are led by boards or commissions who set policy for the district and appoint a Superintendent of Schools. Board and commission members may be elected by voters within the district, or in some cases may be appointed by the legislative body that serves the Anne Arundel County district. While the Maryland State impose frameworks and some minimum requirements for length of school year, teacher qualifications, curriculum and other elements of public education, the Brooklyn Park school district has significant latitude within these frameworks and the authority to manage the day-to-day operation of Public Schools.

Types of Brooklyn Park Public Schools

Brooklyn Park Public Schools are largely organized into three groups, each serving different grade levels. Brooklyn Park Elementary Schools typically serve students from Pre-K, Kindergarten or Grade 1 through Grade 5 or Grade 6.
