On Monday, October 28, Councilmember Tommy Wells will hold a public community meeting on the future of Options Public Charter School to receive feedback and input from the neighboring community and concerned DC residents.
WHAT: Community Meeting on the Future of Options Public Charter School
WHEN: Monday, October 28, 2013; 6:30-8:00PM
WHERE: Options Public Charter School - 1375 E St NE, Washington, DC 20002
Councilmember Wells will host a meeting with the court appointed Receiver for Options Charter School, Joshua Kerns, to hear community concerns about the school.
On October 3, 2013, the Court appointed Joshua Kern as Receiver for the Options Public Charter School (“Options PCS”). The Court appointed a Receiver in order to ensure that Options PCS is able to provide educational and support services to its students and to maintain the school’s safe and productive environment. The Court ordered Mr. Kern to hold, preserve, administer, and operate the business and activities of Options PCS in the best interests of the school’s students and the public.
Councilmember Wells emphasizes that the Court directed Mr. Kern to “not discuss any of his tentative or final findings or recommendations” in public meetings. However, he is delighted that Mr. Kern is eager to listen to the community and consider community insights as he administers Options PCS.
