State Board in the Community: April 2018

By: Kit Faiella, Policy Fellow

Spring has officially sprung for State Board members! This past month, the members of the Board participated in and attended enlightening and fascinating events around the District.

Ashley (At-Large) read to students at Cedar Tree Academy as part of the Read Across DC Campaign.


Ruth (Ward 3) braved the cold and attended the Nationals opening day game.


Similarly, Joe (Ward 6) attended opening day… for the Capitol Hill Little League!

Lannette (Ward 4) met Redskins players Anthony Lanier II (DL) and Jeremy Sprinkle (TE) at LaSalle-Backus’ ribbon-cutting ceremony for their new library!


Markus (Ward 8) hosted a talk with DCPS Interim Deputy Mayor for Education Ahnna Smith during his monthly “Meet with Markus” discussion.


Laura (Ward 1) attended a live conversation between local DC philanthropist David Rubenstein and Mayor Muriel Bowser.


Karen (Ward 7), along with Ashley (At-Large) attended the citywide Every Day Counts event.


The State Board also had the opportunity to visit two schools around the District in April.

Ashley (At-Large), Ruth (Ward 3), and members of the SBOE staff toured Jefferson Middle School Academy in early April.


Joe (Ward 6), Ruth (Ward 3), and members of the SBOE staff and Ombudsman’s Office toured Seaton Elementary School in mid-April.


The State Board is looking forward to continuing to engage with the community throughout the month of May!
