The Inspired Teaching Demonstration School believes in transparency and engaging its community in understanding the policies, procedures, and governance of the school. Through the DC Public Charter School Board, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, and through our own communications via our website, newsletters, family organizations, and open-door policies of school leadership, we strive to make information about our school’s performance and operations accessible to our community. On this page are documents and links to the following kinds of information: our charter agreement, PCSB’s site reviews, academic performance reports, equity reports, annual budgets, 990s, at-risk funding spending plan, school policies and procedures, Board of Directors information, and more.
NOTE: As required in ESEA section 1111(h)(6), parents have the right to request information regarding teacher or paraprofessional professional qualifications at any time. Please email [email protected] to request this information.
ITDS submits documents to PCSB on a regular basis for review and publication. Please visit the following pages:
