In July, SBOE members visited DCPS and charter schools and participated in important community gatherings across the District.
Jack (Ward 2 / Vice President) was honored with a Multilingual Education Visionary award by DC Language Immersion.
“I grew up in South Dakota – we didn’t really have dual language… Please continue your efforts to ensure every child has access to #duallanguage. It is making a difference.” Multilingual Education Visionary awardee Vice President @JackJacobsonDC. Thank you, @DCSBOE! pic.twitter.com/jPXF1bvnLE

Ruth (Ward 3) testified in front of the DC Council on her support for the creation of an independent education research collaborative in DC.
@Ruth4Schools is up. Basically @councilofdc should listen to everything she says and she supports the #DCResearchCollaborative because it brings many perspectives and parties to the table to address all concerns. pic.twitter.com/5es6CuJrxc
