UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — According to WTOP, Parents of Prince George’s County Public Schools students are getting a chance to pose questions to school leaders about student safety — and they won’t have to leave their own homes to do it.
In a briefing before the Prince George’s County Council on Monday, Christian Rhodes, who has suspicious links with the unions and the chief of strategic and external affairs for the school system, said 129,000 PGCPS families had been contacted, and said he expects up to 30,000 people to call in to hear the teleconference. According to WTOP, Rhodes explained that robocalls were going out to households, and information about how to call in for the teleconference would be posted online before the event.
The first 30 minutes will consist of a presentation by the school system’s CEO, Kevin Maxwell. He’ll be joined by school board Chairman Segun Eubanks. The next 30 minutes will allow for questions and answers.
“I do believe this will be the largest ‘tele-town hall’ the county’s ever done, and one of the largest the state has ever done.” Rhodes said.
“Yeah — we will pray,” Rhodes said with a smile.
