Mr. Urban,

The LSRT is against Ultra Teen Choice continuing at Stuart-Hobson Middle School.

They say that your program does not match the DCPS health standards and they do not want an abstinanace only program at Stuart-Hobson.

If you have any questions you can email LSRT chairperson Rachel Kimboko ...

Take care,

Brandon Eatman 

Response from Local School Restructuring Team to an ULTRA Teen Choice Parent

Ms. Brown:

I am working on a more detailed response to you, but wanted to acknowledge your letter. Briefly though, let me confirm that the LSRT decided last year that the school should remove Ultra Teen Choice because their curriculum failed to meet the DC Standards at the time. Certainly, there is no chance that they will meet the new standards when adopted, so it is unlikely that we would invite them to return.

The chancellor has placed a moratorium on all external providers of health and consumer education.  Her goal is to ensure providers programs are consistent with DC standards.

You need to contact Dr. Richard Nyankori in the Chancellor's Office...the Chancellor has placed a moratorium on programs like UTC.

Hi Mr. Eatman,

Can you send a list of all of the the current Cluster Schools LSRT members, and their cluster school affiliation (Stuart, Watkins, Peabody) and position, such as parent, teacher, community representative, etc?  Also, we need a specific delineation of which Health Education Standards are allegedly being violated.  At this point, the claims of the LSRT are without substance, as that body as never delineated any specific reason why the ULTRA Teen Choice program should not be offered for students and parents who choose to participate.
