CHPSPO Meets Tuesday, June 20, at Payne – (come early for interview with Japanese newspaper)

The Capitol Hill Public Schools Parent Organization will meet on Tuesday, June 20, at 6:30 pm at Payne Elementary (1445 C Street, SE). We will be joined by Joe Weedon, the Ward 6 State Board of Education (SBOE) representative, who will be discussing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Advisory Task Force that is being formed by the SBOE.

We’ll also be discussion the Chancellor’s Parent Cabinet being formed (see below), whether Ward 6 should be engaging with DCPS to discuss issues facing our ward (overcrowding, need for more PK3 and PK4 programs, middle schools, etc.), and upcoming CHPSPO elections.

NOTE: Tomoko Ashizuka, a correspondent for Nikkei Newspapers of Japan, is writing about school choice program and education policy. She is looking to interview parents about the role of parent engagement. If you are interested in participating, please arrive early (6PM) to meet Tomoko.

Hope to see you on Tuesday.
