The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) is requesting applications from candidates interested in serving on the State Title I Committee of Practitioners. The State Title I Committee of Practitioners serves as an advisory body that supports OSSE in carrying out its responsibilities under Title I of the ESEA for the District of Columbia. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 requires each State Education Agency (SEA) to maintain such a committee, and as the SEA for the District of Columbia, OSSE is updating the membership of its committee.
The membership of the State Title I Committee of Practitioners must meet certain federal requirements to ensure that different stakeholders are represented. OSSE is seeking a variety of applications for membership. These include: local education agency (LEA) and school administrators; teachers; parents of District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) and public charter school (PCS) students; members of public charter school boards of directors; private school representatives; and pupil services personnel (including school social workers, psychologists, and counselors). OSSE requests that you consider applying to the State Title I Committee of Practitioners and distribute this application form widely to other potentially interested individuals.
Attached to this letter you will find a summary of benefits and responsibilities of becoming a member of the State Title I Committee of Practitioners, along with the membership application. The complete application must be submitted electronically, accompanied by a current résumé, to OSSE.CoP@dc.gov. The first meeting for all individuals selected to serve on the State Title I Committee of Practitioners will be Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016, from 4-6:30 p.m. at 810 First St. NE, Third Floor.
The deadline for the submission of applications is noon on Monday, Dec. 21, 2015. The State Superintendent of Education, Hanseul Kang or her designee will appoint members to terms of 1, 2, or 3 years. If you have additional questions or would like more information, please contact Giana Hutton at (202) 478-5915 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much for sharing these documents and encouraging individuals to apply.
