For months, student athletes, coaches, parents and community activists say they have been complaining about deplorable conditions in the sports facilities at the school, with little response from the central office.

Parham, Janey's chief of staff. The decision follows a Washington Post report Saturday that detailed decrepit conditions in Dunbar's athletic facilities: a condemned running track, rusty weight-training equipment and moldy showers, as well as a lack of toilet paper, soap and dispensers for feminine hygiene products.
