Deborah Hayes Toppins is involved in a major conflict of interest involving the Principal Dwayne Jones at Laurel High School. Both Mr. Jones and Sgt. Debra Toppins have been in illicit affair for years causing issues at Laurel community for sometimes and lack of oversight. Ms. Toppins and Mr. Jones misuses their positions to influence Laurel Police and help cover up crimes. An independent school resource officer is required for Laurel High school who has no ties to the couple.

Last week on or around March 12th, 2018, there was a protest in Laurel High School concerning a movie screened to the staff by Deborah Hayes Toppins. The protest, which was covered by NBC 4, highlighted concerns on violence episodes which triggered grievances by the staff. However, the media failed to pick up the underlying issue concerning an illicit affair involving Principal Dwayne Jones and Head of Security Deborah, Hayes Toppins, which has been ongoing for years and which led to major lawsuit currently in Federal court due to misconduct involving the same couple among others.

To fall in love with your officemate or co-worker is something beyond question of your employer, superior, or even colleagues as it is none of their business. But to have an illicit affair within your workplace, that is another story.

Extra-marital relationship between co-employees is not uncommon. It exists in every workplace and the truth is, even their colleagues or superiors tolerate the same. Organizations such as PGCPS usually does not discourage any romantic relationship between office staff. However, neither tolerates any illicit one as the same is viewed as reflective of the organization’s image and reputation especially by the judging public.

As the employees engage to plan on working to rule for at least the next two weeks, this is one school which will need extra attention for many years if there are no changes made due to shenanigans. Principal Dwayne Jones is very influential as he is the President of ASAP Union with strong links to CEO Dr. Kevin Maxwell himself due to his position.  There should be no special treatment of any employee irrespective of their positions. The previous President of Association of Supervisory and Administrative School Personnel (ASASP) President Mr. James Smallwood promoted hostile work environment at Largo High School and other schools. Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) was sued in Federal court and lost the case and settled others due to similar misconduct.  ASASP union is controlled by a clique of connected friends and has had only two Presidents, (Principal Dwayne Jones and Mr. James Smallwood). Their activities are self serving and not always in the best interest of the public.
