The City's Education Advisory Committee needs your help drafting questions for the debate! The Prince George’s County Public Schools Board of Education is responsible for overseeing public education in the county. Four people are seeking the District 3 school board seat. Whoever is elected will play an important role in addressing the needs of children in our local schools. Please share questions you would like the candidates to be asked, and/or vote for the questions submitted by others. The debate moderators will use the information provided here to create a final set of questions.

District 3 stretches from Hyattsville, Mt. Rainier, Brentwood and North Brentwood west through Chillum, Rolling Crest, and Carole Highlands and north through Adelphi. The debate will take place May 24 at 6:30 p.m. at 4310 Gallatin Street. Join us in person, watch via Comcast 71/Verizon 12, or stream online via

Please note that the City does not endorse any candidate in this election, and is assisting this event only as a service to residents. 



PGCPS will now have an interim CEO appointed until the next county executive can select the next CEO (for a total of ten CEOs in 20 years). Likely, most top administrators will also be replaced. In the past, capital improvements were delayed/overlapped/duplicated with superintendent change. Practices (such as training all personnel on mandated reporting) which had been been in place prior to 2000 were "lost" along the way and had to be re-initiated. Curriculum (such as elementary school guidance lessons on keeping your body safe from inappropriate touching) was abandoned as guidance administration changed over time. How to avoid this now?
