#OccupySasscer with Sea of   Blue

Show Up, Speak Up, Step Up
Educators must have a say in who becomes the next CEO of Prince George’s County.

On June 7 th we are demanding:

  • A seat at the table when selecting PGCPS next CEO.
  • The Board of Education to do the right thing by including additional steps/raises to educators in the FY2019 school board budget, in light of the secret pay raises to the central office and executive cabinet staff.
  • A new countywide plan for a clean and safe school environment.
  • Our grading scandal and scapegoated School Counselors from DuVal High School put back to work immediately!
  • Implementation of a community schools policy.
We’re hosting a conference call for PGCEA members tonight at 7pm to discuss Occupy Sasscer. All you need to do to join our event is call this number (240-219-0120) at 7pm tonight. Thanks so much, and we look forward to talking with you.
