D.C. plans to conduct an annual resource equity review.
It will review access to experienced teachers, per-pupil expenditures, access to advanced coursework, pre-k programs, and specialized instructional support. Data will be updated and shared publicly at least every three years. There is no articulated plan to adjust resource inequity — it simply commits to conducting the review and sharing the data. Additionally, the data should be shared annually rather than on a three-year cycle.
D.C.’s plan lacks processes for stakeholder feedback, review, and adjustment.
D.C.’s plan does not describe a process for providing regular feedback to stakeholders, or to review and possibly modify the plan as implementation is underway. A cycle of feedback, review, and adjustment is also not detailed for school-improvement. There is no mention of public reporting of results on the accountability framework or other metrics beyond accountability.
