Boundary Initiative

Beginning in January, PGCPS will host a series of virtual public meetings to gather community input on its Comprehensive School Boundary Initiative, with the goal of developing potential adjustments for 165 new, expanded or consolidated school facilities.

During the virtual public meetings, the Boundary Initiative team will discuss the process and analysis, and hear from students, families, educators, and community members regarding their boundary priorities.

Below are a series of upcoming community conversation dates:

South County — Thursday, Jan. 7, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Spanish language — Saturday, Jan. 9, 10 a.m. to noon
Central County — Tuesday, Jan. 12, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
North County — Wednesday, Jan. 13, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

A second round of community engagement activities will take place during the spring and summer.

Distance Learning Update

Due to ongoing monitoring of COVID-19, PGCPS will continue distance learning until further notice.

As part of this effort, the school system is seeking additional ways to support students with special needs and English Language Learners, understanding that their circumstances may be different than others. To better understand COVID-19, Schools CEO Monica Goldson has been meeting with a medical advisory team regarding the latest health metrics.

The team, composed of experts across the medical field, shares their knowledge and guidance on the raging pandemic and the risks and impacts reopening schools will have on staff and students.

This information will allow Goldson to make critical decisions that best support students and their loved ones.
