Prince George’s County Educators’ Association Looks Forward to Working with Millard House II to Ensure Educators and Students Have World Class Schools
UPPER MARLBORO, MD — 7 June 2023, This morning Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks held a press conference to announce her appointment of Millard House ll as the new Superintendent of Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS).
House is coming to Prince George’s from Houston, TX where he served as the superintendent of Houston Independent School District (ISD). His ability to achieve academic gains and recruit diverse highly qualified educators has earned him state and national recognition.
PGCEA President Dr. Donna Christy released the following statement:
“We warmly welcome Millard House ll and his family into the Prince George’s County Schools family. PGCEA is thrilled about County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ appointment, as it signifies the opportunity for significant and tangible improvements within PGCPS. The appointment paves the way for real change in our school district, and we look forward to working in partnership towards a brighter future.”
This new administration has the potential to build upon a strong negotiated agreement with PGCEA, enhancing recruitment and retention efforts while strengthening our Grow Your Own program to build a resilient pipeline of educators.
By actively listening to the voice of educators we can alleviate the crushing workload, giving more time for lesson planning and meaningful interactions that prepare students for college and career success.
We can address the lasting impacts of COVID-19 on mental health, well-being, and educational attainment through social-emotional learning initiatives to address these challenges head-on.
Together, we can fully implement the Blueprint for Maryland’s future and the Six Pillar model of Community Schools. Through collaboration with educators, parents, and the community, we will create a culture of inclusivity and collaborative leadership in our schools.
This pivotal moment for PGCPS allows us to focus on recruitment and retention, student well-being, and optimal working conditions to transform our schools into the world class education system our educators and students deserve.
