    • SAT News

      Prince George’s County Public Schools is unable to administer the SAT to all eleventh graders during the March 3rd SAT School Day administration. The SAT can only be administered in-person and our students will still be engaged in distance learning during this time.   

      The College Board who oversees the administration of the SAT is still offering a few Saturday administrations at select locations.  If a student is interested in taking the SAT, please direct him/her to the College Board’s website:

        PGCPS Distance Learning Hotline will provide live assistance to parents/families in order to address and resolve concerns arising during the period of Distance Learning for students.   Parent/Guardians can call 240-696-6229 on Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM for live assistance for technical/equipment issues and/or instructional guidance and support. 

        Parent Centers

        PGCPS heard from parents and guardians during the implementation of distance learning this past winter/spring 2020 – assistance was needed in the areas of technology, instruction, and other supports. Thus we have strategically designated locations throughout PGCPS where parents can receive assistance with technology, accessing and navigating platforms, and other troubleshooting.

        The safety of parents and staff is paramount.  Social distancing will be adhered to. Site stipulations require that all visitors wear masks. Visitors should arrive at their designated appointment time and will be instructed that only one person may enter the facility per family and children may not enter the facility.  The temperature of each center worker and each visitor will be scanned upon entry into the site.  Anyone with a temperature greater than 100 degrees will not be allowed to remain on site.  No children are allowed into the Support Center.  Parents must make arrangements for their child’s safety outside of the Parent Support Center.

        Days/Times: Mondays & Wednesdays, 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. & 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.   Sign up for an appointment **An email address is required to book an appointment online.  If you do not have an email address, please book an appointment through the Parent Hotline at 240-696-3315.
