The COVID-19 pandemic and systemic racial injustice has impacted students, families, and staff in a myriad of ways. At DCPS, we know that opportunity gaps were exacerbated during the public health emergency. That is why, as we developed school budgets and reopening plans, and initial district-wide investments for the next school year and beyond, our priorities are directly aligned to our collective commitment to build back stronger.
DCPS is committed to a strong foundation for our road to recovery, following the vision of Mayor Muriel Bowser, working in partnership with DC Council, and collaborating across the city with partners and stakeholders. We will continue to collaborate with our union partners in the development and refinement of our plans for the fall and appreciate the valuable feedback from our entire community as we recover strong. The following sections provide DCPS’ responses to required elements of the Office of State Superintendent of Education’s (OSSE’s) request for a Continuous Education Plan (CEP). As detailed in the following documents, DCPS created opportunities in May 2021 for stakeholders to share their priorities and provide input on our plans for reopening. Additionally, DCPS sought stakeholder feedback on a draft of this plan in June to inform our final CEP for the 2021- 2022 school year.
