Prince George’s County (Md.) board votes to consolidate alternative schools

Feb. 28, 2022
The district will close Community Based Classroom in Bladensburg and students will be moved to Tall Oaks or Croom High Schools.

The Prince George’s County (Md.) school board has approved a plan to consolidate its five alternative schools into three campuses

The Washington Post reports that schools CEO Monica Goldson proposed the consolidation as a way to bolster students’ academic performance by combining resources.

Under the plan, Community-Based Classroom, known as CBC, would close. Tall Oaks High School would combine with another alternative school, Annapolis Road Academy. Green Valley Academy and Croom High School — the remaining alternative schools — would also consolidate, and Green Valley would be repurposed as a sixth to eighth grade program.

The schools serve at-risk students who struggle with traditional schools. 

The district said the closures would save the district $2.4 million, reports Fox 5 DC
