“DC Reading Clinic (DCRC) has been the most important training I’ve had as an educator. I only wish it had happened at the beginning of my career because it would’ve accelerated so many struggling readers.”

DCPS Becoming

As a nation and as an urban public school system, we are emerging from an unprecedented year having fought through unprecedented experiences. DC Public Schools (DCPS) learned so much as a school community on how to reinvent teaching and learning regardless of conditions. We also witnessed the structural racism in America and the lopsided outcomes that stem from racial inequities. DCPS is at an inflection point, a moment in its history, where returning to a pre-pandemic posture is not an option. Instead, DCPS is shattering the status quo by acknowledging the journey it must take and the work that has to be done in order to be better, stronger, all in pursuit of becoming an antiracist and whole child centered organization.
