Great Teachers Make Great Public Schools
Let’s honor our extraordinary educators and acknowledge the crucial role teachers play in making sure every student, regardless of circumstance, receives a quality education. Join our movement and show your support for great teachers in DC Public Schools.
Leveraging Technology for Blended Learning Models
In 2011, Google.org committed to helping DCPS realize its vision of leveraging technology to accelerate student learning. Today, DCPS is launching a robust district-wide Blended Learning Models Initiative with an initial focus on science, technology, engineering, and math.
Engaging Students and Families
On average, students spend only 14% of their time with classroom teachers, making it essential for families to have the tools and resources to drive student learning. Today, DCPS schools receive training, resources, and support from the Flamboyan Foundation to build effective family engagement practices.
Creating a Performance-Based Culture
In 2007, only 12 percent of 8th graders were reading on grade level, yet the majority of teachers received performance ratings of “satisfactory” or better. Today, DCPS has IMPACT, a nationally acclaimed performance assessment system.
