DC Prep Open Meeting Policy: 

As a network of public charter schools, DC Prep embraces our responsibility to the community of students, family and staff we serve. Board meetings are open to the community, though personnel discussions, competitive contract negotiations, confidential student information and sensitive matters will always be handled in closed session.

All Board meetings will be held from 5:15 to 7:30pm. For the foreseeable future, all Board meetings will be held via video conference. Board meetings are open to the public. To attend, please email board.feedback@dcprep.org at least 3 business days in advance so that we can provide you with the meeting link and any materials for the meeting.
