CHPSPO Meeting Moved to Tuesday, July 23

The July CHPSPO meeting will be held on July 23 at 6:30 p.m. We are moving the meeting to July 23 because the Miner community has a meeting with Chancellor Henderson on July 16 to discuss the firing of Ms. Bunch (July 16 is our regularly scheduled CHPSPO meeting). CHPSPO has been asked to present testimonial at the meeting with the Chancellor.

Atttached are several testimonies that were given at last week’s hearings on the education bills that have been introduced. Attached are testimonies from Cathy Reilly (SHAPPE), Caryn Ernst (Capitol Hill Cluster School), Liz Davis (President-elect of the Washington Teachers Union), and me on the Individual School Accountability Act, and the Mayor’s education bill. Also, attached is testimony by Cathy Reilly on the funding bill.

Please note that Councilmember Catania has scheduled a series of Community Conversations focused on education. The Ward 6 Community Conversation is scheduled for July 31 at the Southwest Library. You can register for the Community Conversation at

Finally, attached is the draft CHPSPO agenda for July 23. If you have other agenda topics, please let me know.
