Need Your support – Complete Survey by DCPS for a New Public High School Location Preference
Please take 2 mins to complete this SURVEY to advocate the location of Bard High School in our ward 3. As you know our school and some others in this area are struggling with overcrowding issues. There is a need for new schools / expansion of existing schools in this community and every voice to support the cause is much appreciated. The deadline to complete the survey is Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
The Office of Public Engagement announced, DCPS in partnership with Bard College is opening a new high school next fall for School Year 2019-2020. Bard High School Early College, Bard DC for short, will be a city-wide, selective high school in Ward 7 or 8. This new school will provide students the opportunity to graduate with up to 60 transferable college credits and an Associate’s Degree from Bard College, free of charge. DCPS put together a survey to gather information from the community on which location traits are most important. In addition to selecting a location for Bard DC Year 1 and future years, DCPS hopes to also learn more about the transportation landscape as we plan for Bard DC’s school opening.
Please contact Helen.Tzow@dc.gov if you have any questions or call 202-520-2277 if you would like to complete the survey over the phone. The deadline to complete the survey is Tuesday, November 27, 2018. A summary of these results will be publicized on the DCPS School Planning Blog.
