A new voucher program?
We have learned today, through the press, that Doug Benevento, with the support of Meghann Silverthorn and the DCSD staff, will be proposing a new voucher program next week. A resolution authorizing the voucher program will apparently be introduced by Benevento at the March 15 board meeting. A description of the new proposed program was given by Benevento to a Chalkbeat reporter; a "Fact Sheet" describing the proposed program is included in the Chalkbeat article published today.
We will be closely following this new proposed program. We anticipate that the resolution supporting the program will be available online on Tuesday; we will publish that when it becomes available.
We strongly urge everyone who is interested to attend the Board meeting on Tuesday, March 15 at 6 pm at the DCSD Wilcox Administration Building in Castle Rock.
