DC Promise Establishment Act is Moving!


Before Christmas, the DC Promise Establishment Actundefinedwhich offers college scholarships to DC residents that graduate from a DC schoolundefinedpassed out of the DC Committee on Education. Next, is a hearing in the Committee of the Whole (all council members) and then two votes. Here are some key dates to save on your calendar as it pertains to this bill. The Chairman has asked the private school community to attend and show support for the bill. Visiting City Council is a great opportunity to have our students see our government in action!
