Dear fellow Prince Georgians,
I ask for your support in urging our county's elected leaders to come together in support of appointing Dr. Monica Goldson, the current Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS), to the permanent position with a full term as the leader of our county's school system.
I ask this not as a member of the Board of Education for the county or as one of Dr. Goldson's former high school students, two unique positions where I have witnessed the tireless work ethic and commitment she brings to our schools, but instead as a committed Prince Georgian who wants our promising school system to continue its rebound and growth due to the result of instability and scandal.
Dr. Goldson's resume speaks for itself, from being a proud PGCPS graduate to being appointed our current Interim CEO. Now, in the midst of a generational and monumental shift towards progress, is the time for all of our elected leaders to come together behind one common goal - stabilizing our school system for the benefit of our students, staff, and communities we serve.
On Monday, May 13th, 2019, at Charles Herbert Flowers High School, there will be a Public Hearing for the PGCPS CEO Search. Please sign this petition and share it with your neighbors and network to spread the word of both the petition and the public hearing! I hope to see you there to show our support for Dr. Monica Goldson.
This is our time...for our schools, county, and future!
K. Alexander Wallace
