Empowering Males of Color in DCPS is an aligned effort by the District of Columbia Public Schools to identify and assess current challenges and successes of PK – 12 Black and Latino males. We will collaborate with the community, as well as school & district leaders to implement effective strategies to enhance the student experience, increase achievement, and prepare our males of color for college, careers, and life beyond DCPS.
The report includes program highlights of EMOC’s first year, baseline data, and brief testimonials.
“Empowering Males of Color: Year 1 of a community-wide investment in our students.”
Over the next three years, DCPS will dedicate $20 million to help our young men of color:
ENGAGE our students, families, and the community in solutions that ensure the long-term success of our males of color.
IMPROVE and expand research-based strategies that are already underway within the district – with an emphasis on equity.
INNOVATE and challenge our approach to problems and reflect on policies that have consistently made an impact on the academic achievement and development of our males of color
