PGCPS Task Force to Release Findings About Deonte Carraway Case Tuesday

A Prince George's County Public Schools task force created to assess how to keep students safe from sexual abuse and other threats will release its findings and recommendations regarding the Deonte Carraway case Tuesday afternoon.

PGCPS created the Student Safety Task Force after Carraway, a school aide, was accused in February of victimizing 19 elementary school students inside a school in Glenarden, Maryland.

Some citizens expressed concerns because they were allowed to participate in task force meetings.

PGCPS said in a statement that members of the public can help review the district's work to keep students safe by completing a survey, but not by attending the meetings.

"It is important to note that the task force has a lot of work to complete in a short amount of time," the district said in a statement. "The community’s input is critical to the work of the task force, which is why the task force is seeking confidential input via a survey."

Carraway made videos of children having sex with him and each other at the school, at a church and at other locations in Maryland, according to the criminal indictment.

He was arrested Feb. 5 after the uncle of a 9-year-old boy saw a nude image on the child's phone, according to police.

Carraway pleaded not guilty to numerous counts of sexually exploiting children.
