The mayor’s office is reviewing DCPS school assignment policies* – for the first time in 40 years. The Ward 6 representatives on the Deputy Mayor of Education’s Advisory Committee on Student Assignment – Denise Forte and Martin Welles – are interested to hear from you at three community forums:
Eliot-Hine Middle School – Thursday, Feb. 13
Stuart-Hobson Middle School – Tuesday, Feb. 18
Jefferson Middle School – Thursday, Feb. 20
All forums 6:30-8:00pm (6:00pm arrival)
Come to any or all of the forums to share your views and recommendations on:
- Your experience with the current student assignment and choice policy (including lotteries)
- School boundaries for elementary, middle and high schools for Ward 6 families
- Feeder patterns for middle and high schools
- Bridging student assignment and choice policies across DCPS schools and charter schools
* School choice and student assignment policies establish the access rights that students have to public schools in the District of Columbia. School choice and student assignment policies determine who gets to go to which school, where and how parents and students apply to school, what rights students have to remain in a school they have chosen, and what rights students have to transfer between schools.
