    Parents say Hardy Middle School in disarray; Henderson readies plan for improvements

    An “emergency parent/teacher meeting” has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday to discuss what some parents describe as the deteriorating environment at the Georgetown school. Interim Chancellor Kaya Henderson, who said in November she had no plans to replace Nerenberg, says DCPS is finalizing a plan it will announce this week “to ensure a safer and more positive student experience at Hardy.”

    The school has had a bumpy time under Nerenberg, named last year by former chancellor Michelle A. Rhee after she reassigned longtime principal Patrick Pope. Some parents say that tardiness, fights, scheduling snafus and disrespectful behavior toward staff have been on the rise since the beginning of the school year.

    Despite the Music & Arts at Hardy motto of thew school, they did not have a winter concert.

    Last month Richard Whitmire, author of the forthcoming biography on Michelle Rhee, informed Post readers last month that Mayor Vince Gray should keep Patrick Pope away from Hardy Middle School.
