The Prince George’s County Council is joining leaders from across the State of Maryland in urging Gov. Larry Hogan to release $68 million in fiscal year (FY) 2016 state-appropriated funds, to more equitably fund school districts across the state.

Maryland anticipates an estimated $500 million budget surplus in the current FY, which further positions the governor to fully fund the State’s Bridge to Excellence formula for fair and equitable funding of local school systems.

Prince George’s County students would receive nearly $20 million in aid from these funds in the current year, allowing for more immediate investment in areas including pre-kindergarten, professional development, signature programs, and technology. The council is urging county residents to contact Gov. Hogan at 1.800.811.8336 and insist on the release of these important funds supporting children and families.

The County Council meets as a legislative body on Tuesdays in the Council Hearing Room on the first floor of the County Administration Building in Upper Marlboro.
