“As family, friends, and colleagues gather to celebrate the life of Dr. Clifford Janey, I would like to extend gratitude on behalf of DC Public Schools for his years of service to the children of Washington, DC. In the districts he served beyond the nation’s capital, Dr. Janey continued to pour his energy, support, and love into educators, students, and their futures every day. Leading a school district is a rewarding but tough job, and Dr. Janey carried out the task with dedication. We are truly saddened by the loss of a dear friend and leader in the urban education space. My deepest sympathies and condolences are with Dr. Janey’s loved ones during this time.”
