Update on Dec. 17, 2012: Thank you for your feedback in response to the 2012 DCPS Consolidation and Reorganization Proposal.
This feedback is particularly valuable as we consider the community’s comments, concerns, and proposals to inform the final Consolidation and Reorganization Plan that will be available in mid-January 2013.
Feel free to continue to view ideas and share your thoughts on the proposal here on EngageDCPS.org after Dec. 17, 2012, but note that we will not be able to guarantee its timely review and its ability to inform the final proposal that will be available in January 2013.
Thank you for your partnership as we strive to ensure that every DCPS school provides a world-class education that prepares all of our students, regardless of background or circumstance, for success in college, career, and life.
To reach the goals that we have laid out in A Capital Commitment, DCPS must use all of our resources wisely – every dollar, every building, and every minute of instructional time.
We cannot do that with our schools as they are now organized. Too many of our schools are too small.
As a result, we spend too much on maintaining small schools rather than investing in programs for students. We began this process by seeking public input through eight ward-based State of the Schools meetings. We also engaged community leaders and demographic experts as we established our proposal. We want your feedback once again.
