TIPS FOR ADDRESSING QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS
Bowie High School is a large school in a very large school district. Bowie serves over 2,300 students with varying academic and social needs. In any complex environment, it can be challenging to get what you need, when you need it.
Here are a couple of tips for navigating the system:
#1 Follow the Guide to Addressing Questions and Concerns from the Office of the Ombudsman: A guide for addressing a host of concerns, from grading policies, social concerns, transportation, and disciplinary matters can be accessed here:
Never heard of the Ombudsman? Here's a brief video explaining this free service and the role of the Ombudsman
#2 Try the brand new "Let's Talk" portal. The PGCPS Parent and Community Advisory Council recently discussed the availability of this new platform that can be used to submit concerns, or compliments!
Here are a few strategies for advocating effectively from Lori Morrow, member of the PGCPS Parent & Community Advisory Council
#1 Identify solutions.
#2 Do your research. Decisions are made at the classroom level, state level, and every level in between. Who has the ability to impact the issue?
#3 Work as a team. Network with parents and staff at your school, as well as other schools and community groups.
All high school seniors who are residents of the state of Maryland, age 16 or over, are eligible to apply. Student pages work for two non-consecutive weeks at either the House of Delegates or the Senate in Annapolis.
All interested students should complete the attached electronic application form and e-mail it to Mr. Richard Moody, Supervisor, Office of Student Engagement and School Support at [email protected].
