Two of the shooting victims have since been released from the hospital. One man remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries while another remaining in the hospital is expected to survive, according to police.

    SCHOOL SAFETY – Dr. MAXWELLL WAS AWARE OF POLICIES TO PROTECT CHILDREN

    First I want to commend our school-based personnel/volunteers who continue to do their part to support and educate students and their parents.

    November 1 we will celebrate Maryland Emancipation Day. As I thought about what this day signifies, I had to ask myself why after over 152 years is as one writer put it “Maryland still struggles with its confederate-friendly past.”

    What makes that question so significant when it comes to school safety in Prince George’s County is because as I looked at the many school policies and procedures that our current CEO was governed by for seven years as the Superintendent of Anne Arundel Public Schools, I ask why if the CEO knowing the power entrusted to him under HB1107 did he not implement the same policies used in Anne Arundel County – to protect the children of Prince George’s County.

    For example:
    1. The Guide to Developing an Effect Volunteer Program which emphasizes that all abuse of children must be reported to Child Protective Services (CPS) or the Police.
    2. The Parent Handbook that ensures parents that all incidents of abuse are reported to CPS or the Police in accordance with Maryland Law.
    3. Policy 904.5 that speaks specifically to reporting child abuse and neglect directly to CPS or the police in accordance with Maryland Law not a supervisor.
    4. Policy JCC (formerly known as policy 902.17) which speaks to how attacks against students or any school employee are handled.
    5. Policy 305 – Ensuring formulation of all Administrative Procedures are in accordance with COMAR.
    6. Policy 506.01 – Establishing a Crisis Intervention Team – comprised of internal staff so parents and students don’t always have to wait months for a focus group to make recommendations critical to student safety.
    7. Policy 800.05 – Nepotism that could address the quagmire where employees are afraid to report incidents of misconduct because they are unaware of the family tree.
    Maryland Emancipation Day was November 1, 1864. The children of Prince George’s County deserved the same protections to a safe school environment and the CEO failed to implement them though his work in Anne Arundel County clearly shows he possessed a very intimate knowledge of the policies that needed to be in place. And of course, he knows unless the County Executive speaks, he cannot be held accountability for deliberately failing to act. This is just another reason why HB1107 must be repealed and ALL leadership appointed under this law removed.
