New Deputy Superintendent Selected For PGCPS

Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) will have a new Deputy Superintendent starting next week. Approved in a unanimous vote from the Board of Education, Dr. Bonita Coleman-Potter will begin her position on July 1.

“The Board of Education welcomes Dr. Coleman-Potter to the school district and the County,” said Verjeana M. Jacobs, Esq., Board Chair. “We will look forward to working with someone who shares our vision of equity and access for all students in our County.”

Originally from Jackson, Mississippi, Dr. Coleman-Potter will assist School Superintendent, Dr. William R. Hite, Jr. with overseeing day-to-day operations of the school system.

"I am thrilled to have Dr. Coleman-Potter join us in our work to improve education for children in Prince George’s County," said Hite. "Her wealth of knowledge and broad experiences are aligned with many of our goals for the school system, and I look forward to working together to serve our students, staff, and community."

Coleman-Potter served as the Deputy Superintendent for the Jackson Public School District in Jackson, Mississippi where she provided leadership for all schools and instructional divisions in the state’s only urban school district. With demographics similar to Prince George’s County, the Jackson school district served a student population made up of 98%African-American students.
