SHADE PTO meeting w/ Chancellor & DCPS

Message from SHADE PTO President Amber Golden:

The meeting with Chancellor Ferebee has finally been set for Tuesday, April 5 at 6:00 p.m. One of the main goals of this meeting is to learn more about Chancellor Ferebee’s position and vision for the DCPS-DESAP partnership. As you know they are in ongoing negotiations to update the DESAP-DCPS 2000 procurement agreement which outlines the governance responsibilities for the school.

SHADE is organizing questions around governance, funding, Arts programming, and staffing. We would like to hear questions from parents from all departments, faculty/staff, and alumni. The meeting is set for one hour. Any questions not addressed during this time will be sent forward for follow-up by the Chancellor and his team.

Please register as soon as possible. We had over 100 participants for the last SHADE meeting with Brooke Pinto and need to double or even triple that number. Both Chancellor Ferebee and Mayor Bowser need to know that we are all watching and aware of their responsibilities to Ellington during this election year.

All the best,
Amber Golden
SHADE PTO President
