Can DCPS answer all S.H.A.P.P.E.'s questions correctly?

S.H.A.P.P.E. (Senior High Alliance of Parents, Principals and Educators) weighs in on the school Reduction in Force and budget cut decisions in this September 30 letter to the City Council.   In addition to raising a number of issues about decision drivers, S.H.A.P.P.E. asks the City Council to hold an immediate hearing at which the Office of the Chief Financial Officer and DCPS leadership would testify "to make publicly available all the financial reports, enrollment and staffing data used in the school budget reduction.   This has to be done to better inform any proposed adjustments to the School Reform Act of 2007."
