Executive Director Judith Sandalow testified before the DC Council’s Committee on Education regarding the Deputy Mayor for Education’s (DME) FY2016 performance. The Deputy Mayor’s role is to oversee the District-wide education strategy and manage interagency coordination. In addition to highlighting the DME’s involvement in the process of addressing challenges around funding out-of-school time programing in the wake of the DC Trust’s collapse, Judith focused her testimony of four other areas where the Deputy Mayor plays a vital role in coordination and strategy:
- Early intervention for childhood disability, as a key part of education;
- Student engagement in school;
- School-based mental health services; and
- Cross-sector collaboration.
