DCPS wants to test 10% of students each week
At-Large Council member Christina Henderson asked City Administrator Kevin Donahue what the process would be like, and if students would be tested without consent. “It is students who submitted consent forms,” Donahue said, though the target is still 10% of the student body. “So if you have some number of people who have submitted consent form, say it’s half the student body, they’ll still be … aiming to sample and test 10% of the overall student body. However, that 10% sampling will come from a smaller number of people,” he added.
