Unprecedented Times, Unprecedented Authorizing - COVID-19 Blog Series
The worldwide pandemic, COVID-19, is changing the way that DC PCSB will hold schools accountable and how school leaders serve students on a day-to-day basis. On March 11, 2020, Mayor Bowser declared a state of emergency in the District in response to COVID-19. It’s important that we as a city have a unified response to this health emergency. Following this announcement, DC PCSB worked in collaboration with DCPS, DME, and DC Health to ensure that we are meeting the challenges facing students, families, and schools.
During this unprecedented time, schools across the District are closed until April 24 to combat the spread of COVID-19. As DC PCSB works to navigate through this rapidly changing situation, we want to be transparent around the challenges we are facing as an authorizer.
