Attendance Awareness

PGCPS joins school districts nationwide in recognizing September as Attendance Awareness Month.

This month, the Office of Pupil Personnel Services and schools across the district will raise awareness about chronic absenteeism prevention methods and promote the importance of daily attendance.

“School achievement begins with regular attendance,” said schools CEO Kevin Maxwell. “As a parent, one of the most important things that you can do to support your child’s academic success is getting them to school daily.”

Poster displays, daily announcements, contests and incentives are examples of ways to promote attendance awareness.

‘Count On Us’

“Count on Us,” the live mathematics homework help-line television call-in show, airs Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Comcast channel 96 and Verizon channel 38.

Students can also email their questions to PGCPS teachers at cou@pgcps.org

District 9 School Board Member Sonya Williams will host a gathering Saturday to talk about school boundaries.

The discussion takes place from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at Starbucks in the Brandywine Safeway grocery.

Report Bullying Now

Bullying, harassment and intimidation have no place in Prince George’s County Public Schools, officials said.

Whether it happens in the hallways or online, such behavior can create hostile learning environments that interfere with students’ academic performance and emotional and physical well-being.

Harassment is motivated by real or perceived characteristics, such as race/ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, or socioeconomic status. Bullying behavior is threatening, intimidating and occurs repeatedly over time with the intent to cause harm.
