Dear Capitol Hill Public Schools Parent Association members,
CHPSPO will meet on Tuesday, September 16, at Maury (1250 Constitution Ave., NE) from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
At the meeting we’ll hear report outs on progress in planning for Walk-to-School Day and the upcoming Ward 6 School Board Candidates Forum.
We will also be discussing the attached Statement of Principles that has been developed by a city-wide group of education leaders, and we will decide whether or not CHPSPO wants to be sign on as a supporter of the principles.
We also hope to have an invited speaker who will discuss a lawsuit the DC Chartered Schools Association filed against the city (http://dcacps.org/d-c-public-charter-schools-law-suit.html) regarding funding of the DC public charter schools.
Finally, attached is information about paid sick leave that is available for DC workers who need to care for sick children, and a blood drive that will be at Miner Elementary on September 20.
