This month, State Board members ushered in Fall by attending community events, connecting with students and parents, and supporting local DC public schools and public charter schools.
Joe (Ward 6) supported student walkers at the annual #WalkToSchoolDay sponsored by CHPSPO.
Another wonderful #Walktoschoolday in the books… This has got to be at least 15 years.
Thanks to @CHPSPO and @sandramoscoso for organizing such a great community event! pic.twitter.com/Cg3E3WAtGS

In Denver this week attending @NASBE’s Annual Conference. Great start to the morning with 2018 National Teacher of the Year Mandy Manning and student advocates talking about putting students over systems and effectively serving our most vulnerable students. #NASBE18 pic.twitter.com/W0FnES3hrG
