GOVERNOR MARTIN O’MALLEY TO WELCOME STUDENTS BACK TO SCHOOL WITH VISIT TO OXON HILL HIGH SCHOOL



ANNAPOLIS, MD (September 7, 2010) – Governor Martin O’Malley will welcome students back to school for the 2010/2011 school year at Oxon Hill High School tomorrow. He will visit with students from the school and discuss the school’s focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math curricula.

Prince George’s County’s Science and Technology Program is a highly structured, four-year aca­demic program. Of twenty-eight possible credits, a student is required to obtain a minimum of thirteen credits in specific mathematics, pre-engineering technol­ogy, research, and science courses. Currently, there are 450 students enrolled in the highly-competitive program at Oxon Hill.

Oxon Hill is currently constructing a new, replacement school. Governor O’Malley committed $7.5 million towards the project in his FY11 budget, part of an overall $151 million school construction investment in Prince George’s County under the O’Malley-Brown Administration, a 67 percent increase from the previous administration.
