Testimony: Deputy Mayor for Education Oversight (FY17)

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.
