Local Artists Wanted to Create Murals for New School Buildings
Many Prince George’s County Public Schools facilities have substantial maintenance needs. With the support of County Executive Angela D. Alsobrooks, County Council and county government, PGCPS will invest $25 million to $30 million a year for the next 30 years in school construction funds, our largest infrastructure investment in generations. The Blueprint for PGCPS takes an innovative approach to school construction financing through a collaborative public-private partnership (P3) to meet the needs of our 136,500 students and nearly 22,000 employees. Over the next decade, more than 30 schools will undergo renovations to improve learning and working conditions.
In October 2019, PGCPS announced the first six schools to be built under the P3 plan: Drew-Freeman Middle School, Hyattsville Middle School, Kenmoor Middle School, Walker Mill Middle School and new buildings in the Adelphi and southern areas of the county. In the coming months, the school system will meet with families and communities to help inform decisions about the school designs and locations.
The Blueprint Schools Program has begun planning for Phase II. The Program has provided a project update via the public memorandum below. Additionally, PGPCS will hold an Industry Forum open to all interested parties on October 21, 2022. The forum will be held at Dr. Henry A. Wise High School, located at 12650 Brooke Lane in Upper Marlboro, MD from 1:00 to 3:00 EST.
