Watch: BOE Puts Cell Towers on 73 Pgcps Playgrounds in 40 Seconds.


Dr. Maxwell and Mr. Rushern Baker -County Executive

The Prince George’s Sentinel was the first to break the story concerning Cell Towers on 73 Prince George’s County Public Schools (Pgcps) Playgrounds more than a month ago.  The following articles covered by Prince George’s Sentinel concerning the issues outlined the problem candidly. See the links below:



This November 11, 2010 video shows the Prince George’s County Public Schools Board of Education agreeing to place cell towers on 73 public school playgrounds.

There was no discussion of this decision and the entire process took a total of 40 seconds. The proposal was on the Board of Education’s Consent Agenda.

This is the super cool “deal” that Prince George’s schools chief Kevin M. Maxwell has been pushing on behalf of Milestone Communications. He said recently that the cell towers are not a huge financial benefit for the school system, but they provide the community with a benefit: better cellphone coverage from carriers.

The “deal” is that a Board of Education votes on a “master lease” to put all school sites up as potential cell tower sites. There is no notice to the neighbors of these school sites in Prince George’s County and no opportunity for public comment.

Prince George’s County Public School parents and neighbors are just now, in 2014, starting to find out that their neighborhood public school playgrounds are about to include cell towers through a deal that was on the Consent Agenda in 2010! The school system estimates that the agreement could generate $2.5 million over five years. But at what cost health wise to the community? This deal was negotiated by Dr. William Hite Jr and Ms.Verjeana Jacobs which raises suspicions. Dr. Segun and Dr. Maxwell are picking up the torch and pushing a notch higher even before the cement is dry.

**Note to Prince George’s County parents and school neighbors: All Boards of Education in Maryland are part of the same club and vacation/conference together each year in Ocean City, Maryland. The club is called the Maryland Association of Boards of Education. Milestone Communications is one of the partners of these vacation/conferences.

Here is the list of Prince George’s County Public School playgrounds that are listed as being available for cell phone towers through Milestone Communications.
