Event description

Description

In an effort to be more effective in our work "to promote cooperation among the parent organizations of the public schools [in WARD 6] in order to improve the education received by all children attending our schools," the Capitol Hill Public Schools Parent Organization (CHPSPO) is engaging the DC education community in a strategic planning process.

All CHPSPO members, parents (family), principals, and engaged community members are invited to participate in this strategic planning (working) meeting where we hope to establish long-term and short-term priorities for our work supporting Ward 6 schools.

We know Saturdays are busy for families and while we hope you can attend the full conversation, we are flexible if you can join in part (see working agenda below).

No babysitting will be provided.
