On June 24th, the Ward Five Council on Education is bringing together representatives from eight of the agencies that comprise the DC education system for a panel discussion. Each of the agencies in attendance will give an overview of their respective organization, their role within the system and how they interact with parents and their children. Most importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to ask the question you’ve been waiting to ask! Our goal is that those present will walk away from the meeting with a good understanding of DC education landscape and how to find resources that will allow them to make the best decision for their family. To join us, RSVP at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/community-conversation-on-dc-education-landscape-tickets-11955008753 (you do not have to RSVP to attend but RSVPing is helpful for planning purposes).
