Four people are seeking the District 3 school board seat.

Kids at HES currently have 20min of recess daily--and that is considered good! Where does PGCPS stand in the discussion about recess/unstructured playtime?

A new Virginia law, which goes into effect July 1, allows school systems to count recess as part of the instructional day. Until now, the law only dictated how many hours of instruction were needed, and school systems had to squeeze-in recess. (

Can what is being done in VA be replicated or enhanced in PG County and MD at large?
