Congress opened the door for charters in the nation’s capital when it passed the DC School Reform Act of 1995 and all public charter schools in the District of Columbia are authorized under the DC Code. The DC Public Charter School Board is an independent body governed by the School Reform Act, which is codified in Title 38, Subtitle IV, Chapter 18. View the DC Code.
Wednesday Bulletin is delivered weekly to DC public charter school leaders and is compiled by DC PCSB's Communications Department. Submissions are welcome and are due by 5 p.m. every Friday to email@example.com. To subscribe to the mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
DC PCSB has completed the installation of lead filters on every drinking water source in every DC public charter school. Roughly 1,640 drinking water sources in public charter schools had lead filters installed: drinking fountains (both bubbler and water cooler style), health suite sinks, staff break room sinks, icemakers, kitchen sinks used for food preparation, and classroom sinks in early childhood (PK and K) classrooms. This work began last September and was completed in December 2017.
