DC Public Charter School Board Announces Search for New Executive Director

About this Event

The DC Public Charter School Board Chair Rick Cruz today outlined the specifics of the nationwide search for a new Executive Director to replace Scott Pearson who is departing at the end of May. This search includes input from public charter school students, families, school leaders, elected officials, and the public.

“This is an important position in the District and we want the very best and right person for the job,” Cruz said. “DC’s public charter schools provide quality options for nearly half of the public school students in the city. For that reason, we want to hear from members of the public as we are seeking opinions and perspectives on the challenges and opportunities facing the next executive director”

Cruz said that there will be several opportunities for students, families, school leaders, elected officials and the public to offer input.

Elected Officials

Elected officials are invited to a roundtable which will take place on Thursday, December 19 at 6 p.m. at DC PCSB, 3333 14th St., NW, Suite 210.

Public Meetings

There will be two public roundtables open to all DC residents to voice their opinions about the qualifications and experience needed by the next executive director. Students, families, teachers, principals and the general public are invited to attend. These will take place on:

Wednesday, December 11 at 6:30 pm at Thurgood Marshall Academy PCS – 2427 Martin Luther King Ave SE

Saturday, Jan 11 at 10 am at KIPP DC – College Prep Academy PCS – 1405 Brentwood Parkway NE

Other Opportunities

Those unable to attend these roundtables will be able to submit comments to publiccomment@dcpcsb.org. All feedback from the roundtables and comments will be available on www.dcpcsb.org/ExecutiveDirectorSearch

DC Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB) has created a dedicated page on its website - www.dcpcsb.org/ExecutiveDirectorSearch - where information about the search can be found.

Cruz said that DC PCSB has retained the national firm of Isaacson, Miller to lead this search in partnership with the Board.
