Background on Decision to Close Washington Metropolitan High School

Thursday, January 23, 2020

Today, DC Public Schools (DCPS) announced that Washington Metropolitan High School will close at the end of the 2019-2020 School Year following a proposal issued in November. This decision to close was shared with the school community after a period of engaging with stakeholders around the proposal.

DCPS engaged with approximately 200 stakeholders including Washington Metropolitan staff, students, families, and community members. We gathered feedback through staff meetings, community forums, and student listening sessions, and also created a phone number for community members to leave feedback via voicemail.

Below are attachments to resources prepared by DCPS for the Washington Metropolitan High School community during the decision-making process. They are posted in reverse chronological order from January 2020 to November 2019.
