When we asked Interim Chancellor Kaya Henderson last month, shortly after she’d been tapped for that position, about Van Ness Elementary in Near Southeast, she laughed and said, “24 hours into this?” and promised that it had a place on her agenda. Last night there was a community meeting, as promised, and local blogger extraordinaire JDLand has a great summary in place about the meeting, complete with scanned handouts from DCPS.  There’s a chance the closed school could reopen for the 2012-2013 school year, but it’s not yet clear if the numbers are there.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
