Our May monthly meeting will be next Thursday, May 11th at West Educational Campus – 1338 Farragut St. NW. from 6pm to 8pm
We have invited At large Council Members White and Bonds, who are on the Council Education Committee. CM Todd has a conflict but will be sending Keiko Yoshino, his legislative policy person. CM White will let us know on Monday. We have also invited Josh Tuch who is a Coordinator at the DCPS Office of Facility Planning and Design.
The Education Capital Budget will be on the agenda as well as the bill before the Council Committee on Health which pertains to maintaining a full time nurse in our public schools. The budget oversight hearing for the Dept of Health is tomorrow. If you have not signed up to testify, they will accept written testimony. We will submit something as the Ward 4 Ed Alliance. Maintaining a nurse has been of prime importance to many of our ward 4 schools.
There will be time to bring up other items of concern. Great if you can let us know what they might be so we can make sure any necessary information is at the meeting.
Please let us know if you will be able to attend. We provide pizza and water.
DECC is holding a rally on May 10th at CHEC from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm urging an increase in Education Funding. You can register for this event here.
