Board Vice Chair Carolyn Graham told the D.C. Council's education committee on Thursday that the board is getting ready to vote on a resolution to create an ad hoc committee whose "sole responsibility" is to oversee the charter schools.
Graham did say the board is working with Janey to include charter schools in his long-awaited master education plan, expected to be released in January.
Graham and other board members not at the hearing could not be reached for further comment.
