The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education and My School DC are holding a public meeting on Monday, March 6 from 6-7:30 at the Woodridge Library (1801 Hamlin St NE) to discuss the proposed walkability preference for public charter schools. The intent of the proposed preference is to improve access to walkable schools for our youngest students. The proposed preference would help families without a walkable by-right DCPS elementary school to access a nearby public charter school.
During the meeting, the My School DC team will describe how the proposed preference would work and the impact of implementing the preference on students and schools. The second half of the meeting will be dedicated to feedback regarding the proposal.
