A Ward 2 State of the Schools event is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Garrison Elementary School. The meeting is being hosted by DC Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson and Councilmember Jack Evans (D-Ward 2). Garrison is at 1200 S Street NW and the meeting is open to the public.
The event begins with a 45-minute expo of all Ward 2 schools, which give attendees an opportunity to speak with school representatives, teachers and parents.
The expo will be followed by remarks from Henderson and Evans and will conclude with three different roundtable discussions: Academic Standards and Rigor; Extracurricular Activities and Programming; and School Culture and Classroom Management.
“The Ward 2 State of the Schools Meeting is an excellent chance to make your voice heard. We all have our opinions on DCPS and where we want it to go — this is the opportunity to share those thoughts. We all have expectations… but those expectations will never be achieved if we don’t work collaboratively to achieve them. I really hope that people will take the time out to be a part of progress and attend the meeting,” said Ann McLeod, president of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) at Garrison Elementary School.For more information about the State of the Schools event, contact Bryant Sewell at (202) 719-6614.
