November 2023. A D.C. Superior Court jury awarded former D.C. Public Schools Investigator Steven Lee $400,000 in damages against the District of Columbia government, in a whistleblower case before D.C. Superior Court Judge Danya Dayson. Mr. Lee grew up in SE D.C. in foster care; his mother was addicted to drugs and died at an early age, and he never knew his father. He was homeless in high school and finished high school in transitional housing in Sasha Bruce housing. He worked his way through college and began employment at DCPS in 2009. For several years at DCPS, he received very good performance reviews, and his work product was held up as the standard for other investigators, through November 2019. In January 2020, he was threatened by his supervisor who challenged Mr. Lee to a fight which Mr. Lee declined. Mr. Tynes reported the incident to another one of his supervisors who responded that she wanted to put Mr. Lee on a Performance Improvement Plan. Mr. Lee was later placed on the PIP in April 2020 and the PIP 2 was extended from June 2020 until December 2020, even though D.C. Municipal Regulations only allow a PIP for 90 days. Mr. Lee was terminated in March 2021 during the middle of the COVID- 19 pandemic and left without income and health insurance after twelve years of employment at DCPS.
