Washington, D.C. — With the theme, “Staying the Course Towards Quality” the DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) today released its 2011 Annual Report.  The theme reflects the Board’s intention to build upon the solid foundation of charter school sector growth, high levels of accountability and continued improvement in student academic outcomes.  The report is the Board’s annual public accounting for its operations, decisions, community engagement and financial stewardship.  It also includes a snapshot of charter school sector profile with selected school highlights.  The report is available on the Board’s website.  Printed copies will be distributed to key government stakeholders, and to community members upon request.
