Temple Hills School District

Temple Hills Public Schools operate within school districts which are separate entities responsible for administering Public Schools. Temple Hills school districts are led by boards or commissions who set policy for the district and appoint a Superintendent of Schools. Board and commission members may be elected by voters within the district, or in some cases may be appointed by the legislative body that serves the Prince George's County district. While the Maryland State impose frameworks and some minimum requirements for length of school year, teacher qualifications, curriculum and other elements of public education, the Temple Hills school district has significant latitude within these frameworks and the authority to manage the day-to-day operation of Public Schools.
