Three top officials who helped oversee public education in the District of Columbia have been fired, including the deputy superintendent of education.
All three worked in the Office of the State Superintendent of Education.
Sandy Schlicker, the highest ranking of the three, oversaw nutritional programs including school breakfast and lunch programs.
Iris Bond-Gill was assistant superintendent of elementary and secondary education and Gregory Meeropol was deputy assistant superintendent of post-secondary education.
All three were let go last week.
A spokesperson for the agency would not comment because it is a personnel matter.
