Printed Information Packet

DCPS has prepared a hardcopy packet of materials that contains
your child’s instructional materials for March 24 to March 31.
If families have not received the printed copy of their student’s distance learning packet, they should visit their school on Monday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Due to the extended school closure timeline, we will have a second round of packet pick-up days on March 31 and April 1 at school. 




Online Instructional Materials

Your child’s instructional materials will also be available online starting on Friday, March 20. We created a special site that houses learning resources for download, gives access to educational online programs, and provides guidance to support your family during this time and ways to request assistance. You can access this mobile-friendly site beginning on March 20 at bit.ly/DCPS_ICP.

 


Assessments 

Due to the extended school closure, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) plans to seek a one-year waiver from federal ESSA requirements around assessments and would cancel statewide summative assessments for students, including PARCC and DC Science. 

In response to the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19, the College Board is canceling the SAT and SAT Subject Test administration on May 2. The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as possible in place of canceled administrations


  One of the resources for families on this site is Clever, which is DCPS’ gateway to many of our digital learning applications. Visit https://clever.com/in/dcpsk12 to access the programs used by grade in school. Students will login using their student ID and password. Please contact our main office at (202) 698-3762, if they cannot recall their Clever credentials.

 In addition to the lessons provided by our school, we encourage families to read, play board games, write in journals, and join in on any other activities you think are appropriate for your child. We will provide additional tips and ideas to engage your child on our DCPS social media accounts, as well as the family resources section of our distance learning site.

We want to reaffirm our commitment to providing your child with accessible, high-quality educational materials. You can rest assured that DC Public Schools is working hard to ensure our students and families have the resources they need to keep be informed, supported, and engaged.

STUDENT MEAL SITES

Beginning this week on March 25, the District will add 10 meal sites for all students, bringing the total meal sites at DCPS buildings to 29 across the District. These sites serve lunch and a shelf-stable breakfast for all residents under the age of 18 on Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. A full list of meal sites can be found at https://coronavirus.dc.gov/food.



First Class: The Legacy of Dunbar, America’s First Black Public High SchoolDunbar High School defied the odds and in the process changed America. In the first half of the twentieth century, Washington D.C’s Dunbar High was an academically elite public school, despite being racially segregated by law and existing at the mercy of racist congressmen who held the school’s purse strings. The school’s well-educated teachers developed generations of high-achieving African Americans, groundbreakers that included the first black member of a presidential cabinet, the first black graduate of the US Naval Academy and the legal mastermind behind school desegregation. Today, as with too many troubled urban public schools, the majority of Dunbar students struggle with reading and math. But there is hope with the opening of a brand new $122 million facility that will bear the Dunbar name.
