4:00 p.m.: A delegation of concerned SWWHS students and parents will hold a “March of the Penguins” to present our petition to Mayor Vincent Gray and DCPS
The SWW high school community — parents, students, alumni and concerned supporters — have strong concerns about the merger of School Without Walls High School and Francis Stevens, especially its impact on the education of our high school children. Chancellor Kaya Henderson and DCPS have proceeded with the merger of Francis Stevens and School Without Walls High School over the objection of parents and without addressing the strong opposing sentiment of the working group DCPS established. Movement forward on the merger continues without any transparency into what the plan for the schools will be and no community dialogue or input.
Over 1080 people have already signed the petition. You can sign it here: chn.ge/OC1hvU
