Thaddeaus Stevens School to Reopen!

In August 2017, Mayor Muriel Bowser, Deputy Mayor for Education Jennifer Niles, and DCPS Chancellor Antwan Wilson announced a multi-agency plan to reopen the historic Thaddeus Stevens School as an infant and toddler child development center and an expansion of School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens. DCPS will be convening a Community Working Group of parents, staff, and leaders from the School Without Walls HS and School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens community to inform the planning for the expansion of Francis-Stevens into the Stevens school.  Notes, materials, and other updates will be posted here – please stay tuned!

Wilson Feeder Pattern CWG: October 2017 Meeting #4 Recap

The Wilson Feeder Pattern Community Working Group (CWG) recently convened for our fourth meeting. In this meeting, the Strategic School Planning Team provided feedback on several options DCPS is interested in pursuing, including strategies to increase capacity and strengthen program offerings outside of the Wilson Feeder Pattern. We also shared updates from our public survey, key takeaways from an enrollment analysis, and dived deeper in the out-of-boundary (OOB) student profiles for the Wilson feeder pattern. Full details and our presentation are here

The Wilson Feeder Pattern CWG aims to meet once more in 2017 with a proposed outline of the summary document and additional feedback and data on existing options. DCPS will then develop a summary document that reviews the process, priorities, and analysis that this group has completed. This document is meant to reflect the priorities of the group and will be shared with DCPS leadership and DME to help inform planning.

Please contact our team if you have any questions! dcps.planning@dc.gov
