Charles County Public Schools are seeking new members for the Safety and Security Advisory Council

News Release, Charles County Public Schools

La Plata, MD- Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is accepting applications for additional members to serve on its Safety and Security Advisory Council.

Members are volunteers with diverse backgrounds with expertise in security, law enforcement, mental health, and other areas. The council meets quarterly and provides suggestions and recommendations to the Superintendent and staff.

Superintendent Kimberly Hill started the advisory council at the end of the 2017-18 school year. Members are divided into four subgroups. Most recently, the facilities subgroup conducted site visits/threat assessments at a number of schools. During the school visits, the group focused on entrance points, arrival and dismissal procedures, lunchtimes, and completed or planned security enhancements.

Charles County residents interested in serving on the council should send a resume and letter of interest to Jason Stoddard, director of school safety and security, at jstoddard@ccboe.com or by mail at P.O. Box 2770, La Plata, MD 20646.


The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
