The Prince George’s County Schools Interim CEO, Dr.
Monica Goldson, has announced a multi-year, $46.5 million proposal to restore
recession-related salary cuts to support nearly 8,300 school employees. Scheduled step increases for school staff have
remained frozen over the last ten years.
The Prince George’s County Council supports Prince
George’s County Schools funding, including operational, formula and
construction spending. The proposed salary
step restoration plan would be supported with funding from the State Kirwan Commission
and nearly $20 million in school system cuts, none impacting classroom
The Council welcomes Dr. Goldson’s efforts to
address this longstanding issue for dedicated school employees who have
continued to serve the system and its students, despite fiscal challenges.
As the County’s fiscal authority, and in
consideration of the current Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Review Process, the County
Council will perform its due diligence and conduct a fiscal impact analysis of
the salary step restoration proposal on the Board of Education Budget.
