    Mission of Prince Georges County Public School

    The mission of Prince George’s County Public Schools is "to provide a great education that empowers all students and contributes to thriving communities" (Prince George's County Public School System, 2016). School systems striving to create an empowering educational community must develop a school climate that values student safety which, in turn, helps to create an environment where students are less vulnerable to predators.  

    The mission is best accomplished through a structure of child-centered learning communities characterized by:  equity and access to a quality education that includes strong instructional leadership; high expectations for the achievement of all students; a rigorous curriculum; frequent monitoring of student performance; extending learning opportunities for students failing to meet academic standards; well trained, certified teachers in all classrooms; enhanced resources; families who are empowered to assist in providing a quality education for every child; a school climate conducive to building positive relationships; a safe and orderly school environment fostering enhanced school pride.  According to Prince George's County Public Schools Student Safety Task Force (2016), school climate include measures such as safety, rules and norms, physical security, social emotional safety, social support from adults, social support from other students, school connectedness, clean and orderly physical surroundings, and effective leadership.
