Prince George’s hires new deputy
Prince George’s County has hired a former Anne Arundel County educator as its deputy superintendent of schools.
Monique Whittington Davis, who served for two years as a regional assistant superintendent in Anne Arundel and began her career in Prince George’s, will be responsible for the divisions of academics, human resources and the county’s associate superintendents.
She replaces A. Duane Arbogast, who was acting deputy superintendent for academics. Arbogast stepped into the acting position after former school superintendent William R. Hite Jr. left to become schools chief in Philadelphia. Arbogast has returned to his previous position as chief academic officer.
Davis is the first administrator that schools chief Kevin M. Maxwell has hired since he took the helm in Prince George’s on Aug. 1. He was previously Anne Arundel’s school superintendent.

Lee High requires health records
Administrators at Fairfax County’s Lee High School wrote in a letter to families that students will not be allowed to attend classes when school begins on Sept. 3 unless parents provide proof that their child’s immunization records are up to date.
The request to parents from Lee officials comes after three people at the school contracted tuberculosis in June. In the weeks afterward, the Fairfax Health Department asked that all students who attended the school last year receive a free test for the disease.
In the letter, Lee administrators wrote that students must receive all required immunizations before they will be allowed to register for classes this fall.
