Public Education in DC: Council 19 Priorities
PUBLIC EDUCATION IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA: WHAT PRIORITIES SHOULD THE COUNCIL ADDRESS DURING THE REMAINDER OF COUNCIL PERIOD 19
Council Chairman Phil Mendelson announces the scheduling of a Public Roundtable by the Committee of the Whole to discuss what priorities the Council should address during the remainder of Council Period 19. The Public Roundtable is scheduled for Friday July 13 at 1:00p.m., in Hearing Room 412 of the John A. Wilson Building.
The purpose of the public oversight roundtable is to receive testimony regarding the important issues confronting public education in the District, and what the Council ought to address during the remainder of this year. In as much as Council leadership has changed, this hearing is a useful opportunity to reassess the priorities that need legislative or oversight attention.
Those who wish to testify should register online or contact Ms. Erika Wadlington, Legislative Assistant, at (202) 724-8124, by fax at (202) 724-6664, or via e-mail at email@example.com, and provide their name, address, telephone number, organizational affiliation and title (if any) by close of business Thursday, July 12, 2012. Persons wishing to testify are encouraged, but not required, to submit 15 copies of written testimony. If submitted by the close of business on Thursday, July 12, 2012 the testimony will be distributed to Councilmembers before the hearing. Witnesses should limit their testimony to five minutes; less time will be allowed if there are a large number of witnesses.
If you are unable to testify at the roundtable, written statements are encouraged and will be made a part of the official record. Copies of written statements should be submitted either to Ms. Wadlington, or to Ms. Nyasha Smith, Secretary to the Council, Room 5 of the Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20004. The record will close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 27, 2012.
