Dr. Maxwell hired several close friends and others connected to Rushern Baker III regime awarding six figure salaries to each one of them at the expense of PGCPS Children. Any cuts within the school system needs to start at Sasscer administrative Building where his close friends are based. There is no need to cut teachers who work hard in the classroom.
UPPER MARLBORO – County officials are reeling after taking a deeper look into Governor Larry Hogan’s proposed state budget.
County Council Chairman Mel Franklin said the “mixed bag the county received is a worse mix than we thought,” while Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Kevin Maxwell, said cuts could equate to more than 500 teachers’ jobs.
Two weeks ago Hogan announced his proposed budget, cutting the state aid the county receives from the geographic cost of education index (GCEI) in half, resulting in a reduction of $19.7 million, according to PGCPS Chief Financial Officer Raymond Brown, the school system’s chief financial officer. Brown also said the school system will lose out on $12.7 million as a result of Hogan freezing the per-pupil funding for the state’s Foundation program at the level for fiscal 2015. The school system will also receive $4.1 million less than the estimated after Hogan chose to delay the phase-in of the net taxable income (NTI) funding, keeping the funding at 40 percent instead of increasing it to 60 percent. In total, Brown said the school system will miss out on an extra $38 million.
