In a letter to parents and teachers, Dr. Arlotto says, “I have every intention to continue my work on behalf of our students and school system until my contract expires at the end of June. I wish our Board, our awesome staff, our families, and the Anne Arundel community, only the best as you move forward, collectively, to support, nurture, and love our students.”Dr. Arlotto adds although he would have preferred to remain as Superintendent, the Board of Education has informed him it will not offer a third contract.

County Executive Steuart Pittman responded to Dr. Arlotto’s announcement: Quote – “Dr. Arlotto is a consummate professional with a huge heart and an unwavering commitment to children and education. He has served this county with distinction throughout his nearly eight years as AACPS Superintendent, and he will be missed. I am confident that Dr. Arlotto will facilitate a smooth transition, and that the Board of Education will choose wisely after a careful search for the superintendent who will lead us into the future.”
