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. 

 

 

Certain life experience may enable a board member to make better decisions: training & credentialing to become an educator, actual work experience in a school setting, supervising other educators, having been a student in PGCPS and thus having the knowledge/awareness of PGCPS history that otherwise may elude due to age, having been a parent of a child in PGCPS, having volunteered within schools, having been a District 3 community/school activist and thus aware of the particular concerns of District 3 residents which may or may not be the same as the rest of the County, having had direct experience which would help one understand the diverse population in District 3 schools, etc.
