For the final Stevens CWG meeting, DCPS hosted two calls to share an update on the Thaddeus Stevens building, engage the community on opportunities for connections within the area, and discuss the planning process moving forward. With a citywide approach, DCPS will continue planning towards goals of increasing access to quality ECE seats, while also focusing on new opportunities to expand citywide capture and build a diverse school community.

Here are some key components of this Thaddeus Stevens project:
- Stevens ECE Center will include DCPS pre-kindergarten programming and 0-3 infant and toddler programming through partnership.
- The DCPS ECE program will be open to applicants citywide and will not have a boundary.
- Opportunity to utilize intentional design and enrollment approach to build SES and ability-diverse school community.
- We are tracking towards an August 2020 opening date.
