"The safety and welfare of our County's children and the students enrolled in Prince George's County Schools is our highest priority. The Council, by exercising our oversight role and insisting on a management structure and set of values that require full accountability, will need to see hard evidence of the measures being taken to ensure these lapses will not happen again and that any systemic issues are comprehensively addressed."
