Notice of Petition to Amend: Special Education Audit Policy
The District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB) announces an opportunity for the public to submit comments on Special Education Audit Policy. DC PCSB staff proposes changes to the Special Education Audit Policy, including 1) updating the policy’s name, 2) introducing criteria and procedures to identify and address schools that may not be equitably serving students with disabilities, and 3) articulating DC PCSB’s post-audit intervention methods. The revised policy seeks to identify patterns of inequity in student outcomes that may be caused by a lack of access to quality programming for students with disabilities. The revisions also seek to provide pathways for schools to interrogate and address potential inequitable practices or procedures.
