DCPS Central Office is Moving
1200 First St, NE is the new DCPS Central Office address
DCPS Central Office is moving! In an effort to cut costs and use space more efficiently and effectively, starting March 1, 2010 DCPS Central Office will be located at 1200 First St, NE, Washington, DC 20002, a few blocks north of our current location.
There will be no interruptions to services provided from Central Office, although the building will be inaccessible over the weekend of February 27.
While the location will be different, all phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same. Click here to see the floor each office will occupy at 1200 First St, NE. Of special note, Human Resources, one of our most highly trafficked offices, will be located on the 10th floor.
Through this move the District of Columbia will save 15% on the cost of its lease and DCPS will occupy 20% less space, further saving on utilities and operating costs. The smaller space and new bull-pen layout will enhance collaboration within Central Office helping every team to better serve and support our schools and students.
The new location will also be very accessible to the public. There will be paid, public parking available but more importantly there is easy access to the New York Avenue/Florida Avenue/Gallaudet University metro stop. The Greyhound Bus Station, Union Station, VRE, Marc, and Amtrak are all within walking distance as well.
We look forward to your visits.
