According to DC Public Schools Chancellor Antwan Wilson, “DCPS saw an overall 6.4 percentage point increase in English language arts and 3.5 percentage point increase in math. I’m thrilled about this unprecedented progress, a clear sign of student learning, our commitment to our young people, and our investment in the programs and curriculum that support the work.” Furthermore:

  • Students at EVERY grade level made gains on the PARCC assessment, including strong gains among middle grades in both ELA and math;

  • 44 DCPS schools experienced a 2 percentage point increase or more in both ELA and math.

Chancellor Wilson went on to note that, “At DCPS, we need all our students to succeed, which means we must give every student the support that fits their unique needs… We can only achieve great things together. Thank you for being partners in this work as we ensure that DCPS keeps rising!”
