[ARCHIVED] COUNCIL TO HOLD JOINT EDUCATION TOWN HALL MEETING WITH COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION

April 19th Town Hall Meeting to Focus on Continuous Business Process Improvement Plan; Citizens Urged to Attend and Contribute to the Discussion

The Prince George’s County Council, joined by Prince George’s County Schools CEO Dr. Kevin Maxwell, Board of Education Chairman Dr. Segun Eubanks and members of the Board of Education, will hold a joint Education Town Hall Meeting, Tuesday, April 19, 2016, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. High School, 12650 Brooke Lane in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

Council Chair Derrick L. Davis, D – District 6, says the Education Town Hall meeting is an important opportunity for residents to participate in the County’s assessment of the operations in key areas of the school system.

“Education and the state of our school system are issues that impact every resident. Now more than ever, as we focus on the great future of our County, it is imperative that we work collaboratively - parents, caregivers, educators, elected officials and all stakeholders - to ensure school system operations run at optimal levels. We want to hear directly from residents about their experiences with the school system so their ideas are considered in every facet of decision-making.”

The Education Town Hall Meeting will feature presentations from the Continuous Business Process Improvement Project Team, which includes Ernst & Young, UPD and the Strategic Solutions Center, addressing the process of comprehensively assessing the operations of key areas in five divisions of Prince George’s County Public Schools: Human Resources, Curriculum and Instruction, Supporting Services, Business and Management Services, and Information Technology.

The meeting will also feature a unique opportunity for citizen engagement with breakout sessions facilitated by the Continuous Business Process Improvement Project Team to discuss challenges and develop ideas in the areas of transportation, facilities, and specialty programs in the County’s school system.

"It's important to gather input from our community members, parents and stakeholders to ensure appropriate operations in key areas of PGCPS," said Dr. Segun Eubanks, chair of the Prince George's County Board of Education. "We have a duty to provide a world class education that will produce the leaders of tomorrow."
