Community School Updates
RFP has not yet been released. Plan is still to apply as the lead agency for the schools that would like us to—currently Franklin Square, George Washington, Charles Carroll, potentially Vivien T. Not sure about about SBCS. Will meet with the new principal at Steuart Hill when she returns from vacation.
The SWP Board still needs to approve us being the lead agency. There will be a special board meeting on Thursday the 8th for this approval.
With 5 schools can hire a program manager, do have a commitment to meet gap for program manager.
