CHPSPO will meet on Tuesday, May 16, at 6:30 pm at Maury Elementary. We will be joined by Claudia Lujan who will be discussing the DCPS Reign: Empowering Young Women as Leaders Initiative. We will also discuss the ESSA Advisory Task Force the State Board of Education is forming, and discuss holding elections to fill officer positions for CHPSPO.
Please continue to encourage your school communities to sign the Petition to the DC Council supporting a 3.5% increase in the uniform per student funding formula. It is important to sign the petition soon as the Council will be voting on the budget the end of May. Currently, there are 821 signatures on the petition. Here is the link to the Petition — http://bit.ly/2q91FI3. Also, here is a Washington Post op-ed about the need for the budget increase — http://wapo.st/2pvw6JH
Hope to see you on Tuesday.
