Prince George's County Council for the Social Studies

About Us

PGCCSS is an independent professional organization within Prince George's County Public Schools and boasts a growing membership each year. We are the only local Social Studies Council recognized by the National Council for the Social Studies and have earned Silver and Gold Star status for many years. Social Studies is the only content area with its own local council and proudly serves teachers, students, and the community by recognizing outstanding educators and students in Prince George's County Public Schools.

Additionally, our Council provides opportunities for teachers to receive free training and materials for use within the classroom as well as social events for professional networking. It is a viable organization in our community within our school system and well worth the membership.
