Read the petition and sign it here: We, the signers of this petition, call on Chancellor Henderson to act in the best interest of SWW High School students and do the following:
1. Appoint a full-time Principal dedicated to, located at, and advocating for the best interests of School Without Walls High School.
2. Make the permanent decision that no SWW High School student will have to attend classes at Francis Stevens nearly a mile away from the existing high school campus across busy trafficked streets.
3. Separate the budgets of SWW High School and Francis Stevens to provide parents of both schools transparency and accountability in how their children’s education dollars are being managed.
4. Present a clear, coherent and workable plan for the merger to the community — which to date has not been made available — before any further merger steps are allowed.
School Without Walls High School exists to serve our high school students and deserves to be treated as an asset to the city. This is our children’s education and they deserve better from DCPS than to have their interests fall on deaf ears. Anything short of a transparent process that is guided by a realistic plan is unacceptable to their future.
