Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) will break ground on six new schools this week to address growing enrollment, a middle school seat deficit and rapidly aging buildings. County leaders say it is cause for celebration. Six groundbreakings over three days for six new schools.
According to the Blueprint Schools initiative, PGCPS is the first public school system in the nation to leverage a full-scope alternative financing model to design, build, finance and maintain a multi-school construction program.
Groundbreakings for all six schools are slated for Monday, June 28 through Wednesday, June 30, beginning with the new Walker Mill Middle School in Capitol Heights followed by ceremonies for a new Adelphi middle school, replacements for Drew-Freeman, Hyattsville and Kenmoor middle schools and a new K-8 academy in Fort Washington.
