CHPSPO will meet on Tuesday, May 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Miner Elementary (601 15th Street, NE) in their library. We will have representatives from the DC Fiscal Policy Institute discuss the attached letter supporting a sales tax increase. They are asking if CHPSPO would be willing to sign on to the letter. According to our by-laws, we will need 50% of our member schools supporting the letter in order for CHPSPO to sign.
We will also have Claudia Lujan from the Deputy Mayor for Education’s office at our meeting discussing the plans for the cross-sector task force.
Because we learned late last week that the Council did not vote to add funds for the modernization of Jefferson or Eliot-Hine to the Capital Improvement Plan, we will be discussing next steps in advocating for facility improvements for our middle schools. Finally, we will be discussing plans for a Ward 6 Community Forum on language immersion programs.
Hope to see you on Tuesday.
