Community Update on the PGCPS Master Plan Support Project Report:
This Community Update will take place on August 20, 7:00-8:30, at William Wirt Middle School in Riverdale. Through the Master Plan Support Project, PGCPS evaluated every school building in the County in three critical areas: mission, condition, and function. The BOE will use these results to prioritize school construction, renovation, boundary changes, school closures and more.
Prince Georges’ County Council Member Dannielle Glaros has invited PGCPS Director of Capital Programs Sarah Woodhead to come to our community to share the report and recommendations and to answer your questions. For more information about the Master Plan Support Project and the final report, see http://www1.pgcps.org/cip/index.aspx?id=203913
