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 Hyattsville.org.

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

 

 

When a teacher has to be on leave for an extended period of time and teaches a speciality class, like orchestra, chorus, etc., students are generally just given a free period and receive no instruction. Current county policies don't encourage long-term substitution either (i.e., must be in the class for 16 consecutive days for the same teacher before the higher rate of pay kicks in).
