Bryan M. Swann was sworn in to fill a vacant District Four seat on the Prince George’s County Board of Education, following appointment by Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.

Mr. Swann was chosen from a pool of highly-qualified candidates who were interviewed after the County Executive spoke with County leadership and held an open application process for residents of Board District Four.

“Bryan Swann will be a strong advocate for students and teachers not just in Board of Education District Four, but for every school and community in our County,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.  “His background and knowledge in budget analysis and operational management will make him a strong asset to our Board, helping us navigate the challenges and opportunities we face for Prince George’s County Public Schools.”

Swann, who has two children in the school system, currently works at the U.S. Department of Treasury as the Deputy Director of the Office of Financial Management.  He brings a number of skills with him from this role, including budget forecasting, execution and reconciliation. Swann previously worked in the Obama White House, the U.S. Department of Defense, and has private sector experience, giving him an extensive policy and project management background that will assist our Board of Education in its mission to provide a great education to every student. 

Swann’s educational background is also local, as he received his B.S. in Business Management and his M.B.A. from the University of Maryland, College Park.  He also completed his M.P.A. at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, with a focus on Studies in Educational Policy and Digital Government.  He is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, having received several medals for his service to our country.

"As a product of PGCPS, I am proud to serve the community I grew up in,” said Swann. Our County has a rich foundation to build upon but significant work lays ahead.  I look forward to working with the other board members, administration, schools, communities, and parents to advocate and champion excellence with equity for our children.  I'll see you at work!”
