PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY COUNCIL CHAIR TODD M. TURNER ISSUES STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO BOARD OF EDUCATION DECISION ADVANCING THE ALTERNATIVE CONSTRUCTION FINANCING PROJECT TO BUILD NEW SCHOOLS

The Prince George’s County Council congratulates Board of Education Chair, Dr. Alvin Thornton, and Board of Education members,  on their endorsement of the historic Alternative Financing Construction (ACF) project, a first of its kind school construction model in Maryland and the nation. 

This week, the Council adopted CR-100-2020, as amended, approving the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the governing document that will guide the County’s collective roles and responsibilities as we proceed down the path for this groundbreaking public-private partnership approach to building the new schools we need.

This novel, innovative and collaborative school construction model is an exciting undertaking, and the Council looks forward to traveling this critical journey jointly with County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, Prince George’s County Schools CEO Dr. Monica Goldson, the Board of Education, and state lawmakers,  for the benefit of our children and residents.
