Testimony of Naomi Rubin DeVeaux
Deputy Director DC Public Charter School Board
Hearing on the District of Columbia Education Research Advisory Board and Collaborative Establishment Amendment Act of 2018
Committee of the Whole and the Committee on Education
September 18, 2018

Good afternoon Chairman Mendelson and Education Chair Grosso. I am Naomi Rubin DeVeaux, the deputy director of the DC Public Charter School Board. In my role of overseeing school quality, I have recently overtaken the responsibility of this proposed legislation. As my Board Chair stated on July 13, the DC Public Charter School Board is fully supportive of this bill’s goal to more deeply understand what all of our schools can do to fully serve our students. We also completely support more robust analysis of the progress we have made over the past decade of reforming our school system. To date, I have read about the proposed structure shared through the Deputy Mayor’s office. I look forward to continuing to learn about the structure and am happy to answer any questions you may have.
