MAYOR GRAY PLANS
TO CLOSE MORE SCHOOLS!
YOUR SCHOOL MAY BE AT RISK!
DC commissioned a study of our public schools by a Chicago organization called IFF, that was funded by private money from the Walton Foundation (Walmart).
The study ranks all schools into 4 Tiers by Test scores (Tier 1 being the highest performing and Tier 4 being the lowest performing). The study recommends that all Tier 4 and some Tier 3 schools be Closed or undergo a Turnaround
38 SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDED FOR CLOSURE
OR TURNAROUND/TURN OVER TO A CHARTER OPERATOR
JOIN EMPOWER DC FOR A MEETING ON
SATURDAY MARCH 10TH FROM NOON-1:30 PM
