This Wednesday, December 5 from 6 – 8 pm, DCPS is holding a community meeting for Wards 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 to discuss their school closing proposal. The meeting will be held at the Brightwood Education Campus located at 1300 Nicholson St, NW in Ward 4.
While none of our schools are on the school closure list, I believe it is still important to speak out for the closing schools. Some of the schools proposed for closure are working hard to attract neighborhood families, and are starting to see increasing interest in their schools. Other neighborhoods are faced with not having a DCPS school within walking distance if some of the schools close.
Many of our schools have seen great improvements in recent years. I think it is important for DCPS to hear from Ward 6 families about what is working in our schools, and share ideas for how DCPS can support neighborhood schools. I plan to be at the meeting on December 5th, and hope to see you there.
