Upcoming hearings, Performance and Budget Hearing schedules – Jan-Feb 2019

Good afternoon –

The Council’s Performance Oversight and Budget Oversight schedules are now out, so I wanted to pass those along (attached) and flag a few other hearings of interest. Coming up on Friday, the Committee of the Whole and the Committee on Education will hold a hearing on the issue of At-Risk School Funding in general, and CM Allen’s At-Risk School Funding Transparency bill specifically. We’ve heard from many of you over the years about this issue – we hope you can come out to testify on Friday. Let me know if you have any questions.
