Parents talk live to the CEO in Prince George’s County

Several parents and students from Prince George’s County public schools met Monday night at Yogi Castle Hyattsville (Arts District) starting at 6:30 p.m with Delegate Alonzo T. Washington during the 1st Annual District 22 Ice Cream Social with special guest PGCPS CEO Dr. Kevin Maxwell.  

The discussions centered on some of the sweeping changes currently in progress within the schools. Some of the parents were still unhappy and they expressed themselves as you can see from the video above. Parental engagement is very important component  to the school districts across the world not just in Prince George’s County. There has been a quick recognition and a direct link between parent engagement and the academic success of students all over the world. In fact, a key predictor of academic achievement is the level of collaboration between families and teachers. A lot remains to be done. We plan to share more information and the next steps as the time progresses but it was a good start. #PGCPSimg_4775img_4788
