Parents at DuVal High School in Prince George's County are closely monitoring changes that are happening around their children.

“Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) has made changes to the leadership team and staff at DuVal High School due to non-compliance with district grading and graduation procedures,” Chief Executive Officer Dr. Kevin Maxwell said in a statement.

Some parents are angered about the situation.

“Now we have three counselors gone, ridiculous,” said parent Keisha Chase.

Said Vida Kelly, “Our kids lose at the end of the day, there has been so many staff shakeups here."

The changes come after an October audit showed that roughly 5 percent of PGCPS students were not qualified to graduate. The study looked at a sample size.

“We need new people. Fresh people to come in and I’m not just talking about at the school level, I’m talking about at the administration level, the county level, we just need to clean house” Kelly said.

“I’m calling for the resignation of Kevin Maxwell, Monique Davis and Kathleen Brady,” Keisha Chase said.

“Mr. John Brooks will continue serving as acting principal through the end of the 2017-18 school year. Several staffing changes have been made and at this time, we do not anticipate any additional changes being made. The removal of staff will not affect the delivery of instruction provided daily,” Maxwell said.
