Want to know how much DC spends on your child’s school? Worried about staffing cuts? Interested in the health and safety conditions of school facilities?

We’re excited to bring together transparency advocates for the first in a series of “Digging into DC” trainings to help you try to find almost anything you’ve ever wanted to know about DC’s public and charter schools.

This virtual kickoff session will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20 via Zoom. Speakers include:
● Sandra Moscoso, parent activist and D.C. OGC board member
● Fritz Mulhauser, open government expert and D.C. OGC board member
● Niquelle Allen, Director of the DC Office of Open Government
● Miranda Spivack, journalist and open government expert, D.C. OGC board member,
moderator
● Karen Janka (she/her) – D.C. Library Association, cohost

Register for Digging into DC here.

This is the first in a series of free open government trainings that will continue through the fall and focus on how to locate a range of information such as criminal justice data, social services data, and data from multi-government and multi-state agencies.

Please come prepared with your questions about the best ways to get information from DC’s public and charter schools. We look forward to seeing you at Digging into DC.

The event is sponsored by the D.C. Open Government Coalition, the D.C. Library Association, and the D.C. Office of Open Government.
