As you may already know, DCPS Chancellor Kaya Henderson is stepping down from her post this fall. John Davis (currently Chief of Schools) will step in as Interim Chancellor beginning October 1st. DCPS is looking for a new chancellor.
Over the summer, Mayor Bowser announced the creation of a DCPS Rising Leadership Committee. This committee will provide the mayor with recommendations during the process to select a new chancellor.
The DCPS Rising Leadership Committee will meet three times over the course of the chancellor selection process and discuss the selection factors and priorities for DCPS in making their final decision. The Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) will lead a series of community forums across the District. These forums will be an opportunity to hear from the community and gather input that will help the next Chancellor hit the ground running.
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 30th from 6:30pm – 8pm at Roosevelt High School (4301 13th Street NW). Click here for upcoming community forum details.
