The DC State Board of Education has accepted final reports of the school year from its Student Advisory Committee and Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) task force.

At its public meeting in June, the board enthusiastically recognized and honored Dr. Faith Gibson Hubbard, Maya Garcia, Juneteenth Independence Day, College Bound, Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program, and the Marion Barry Youth Leadership Institute. During this month’s working session, the Office of the Ombudsman and the Office of the Student Advocate shared their third quarter reports.

All students, parents, educators and community members can testify on education issues at every public meeting. The deadline to sign up for July’s public meeting is at 5 p.m., Monday, July 15.

Free Summer Meals

The DC Free Summer Meals program helps ensure that no child or young person in the city goes without breakfast, lunch or snacks while school is out of session.

The program is now in operation at more than 250 sites across all eight wards. No matter which site a person goes to, they can get a free meal or snack, no questions asked, with no IDs, forms, or personal information needed.

To find a nearby Summer Meal site, text “FOOD” to 877-877 or go to osse.dc.gov/dcsummermeals.
