Where's my report card?

That's the question many a parent of a DCPS student are asking these days. Apparently a number of end of school year 2006 report cards still haven't been received by students & parents.
According to D.C. schools spokeswoman Roxanne Evans, the school system mailed out all 20,000 report cards July 13. She says she doesn't know why some never reached parents and students.

This is the second delay for student report cards. The school district says an accounting glitch pushed back the first report card mailing from June to July.
If you are one of the parents whose student is still sans report card you can call 202-442-5635 from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. to request a new copy.

It is somehow fitting that a school system that can't get books into the hands of some of its students on time also fails to deliver their report cards. Sad, but fitting.

I thought that there were over 60,000 students in the DCPS system. If they mailed out all 20,000 report cards on July 13th; that means 40,000 students were not mailed a report card. You do the math. Is Ms. Evans serious or delirious?

Why did it take so long in the first place?

The children of the District deserve better. This type of negligence and mismanagement is unconscionable anywhere, but in particular in the nation's capital.
