Aug 18, 2021

Washington, DC –– Following Mayor Bowser’s press conference providing updates on health and safety protocols ahead of the start of the school year, DC Charter School Alliance Founding Executive Director Shannon Hodge released the following statement:

“All public charter schools are committed to the highest safety standards, including following DC Health’s safety guidelines for schools, as they work hard to deliver the high-quality education our students deserve. As each local education agency is independent, implementation of those guidelines vary. Those interested in protocols should reach out to individual public charter schools directly for additional information.”
