BOE Engages Community, Second Series of Meetings

The Prince George’s County Board of Education is hosting a second series of meetings in every school board district throughout the county in March and April. With the theme “Taking Your Board to the Community,” the meetings will provide opportunities for students, parents, and citizens to discuss public school issues. During the meetings, Board Members will share information on topics of interest and report on school system programs and initiatives.

“This Board of Education is committed to providing ongoing opportunities to get involved in public education,” said Board Chair Verjeana M. Jacobs, Esq. “Through such collaboration, we learn what is important to our stakeholders, and can use that input when developing school district policies.”

The first community meeting on March 2 is specifically geared towards students attending Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS). March 9 will begin the district meetings containing information of interest to all community members. All community meetings will begin at 7 p.m. For more information, call the Board Office at 301-952-6115. Spanish Interpretation will be available at the meetings. Meetings are scheduled as follows:
