DCPS Chief Operating Officer Carla Watson, Chief of Family and Public Engagement Shanita Burney, and members from each of their DCPS teams met with the Ward 3/Wilson High School Feeder Pattern Education Network on Wednesday 5/3 to discuss school crowding. We shared data on enrollment, facility capacity, and population projections, and put some preliminary solutions ideas on the table for discussion.
We had a rich conversation about the parent and community perspective on school crowding, and some initial thoughts on how to address it in the short and long term. The presentation and meeting notes are below, and the first Community Working Group meeting around crowding in the Wilson HS feeder pattern will be on May 16th at Stoddert ES.
Many thanks to Principal Martin and Brian Doyle for hosting us!
