Arnold Elementary Gets a New Principal
Arnold Elementary's new principal will be Shauna Kauffman, who was the principal of Crofton Elementary.
Seventeen schools across the county will have new principals in the coming school year, including Arnold Elementary School (AES).
Fourteen teachers and administrators from the Broadneck area retired this year, including AES' principal Rosemary Biggart, who had been with the school system for 40 years.
Arnold Elementary's new principal will be Shauna Kauffman, formerly the principal at Crofton Elementary, according to a press release from Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS). In 2011, Kauffman moved from being the principal of Central Special Education to Crofton Elementary.
Kauffman asked school administrators for a transfer to a different school this year after an incident at Crofton Elementary where a child threatened a teacher, according to The Baltimore Sun. The incident prompted a school visit by police in March.
A new principal still needs to be named for Cape St. Claire Elementary, which saw its principal and assistant principal retire at the end of this school year. The changes to principals across the county will become effective June 27.
