DCPS proposes new middle schools for Ward 5

DCPS has released its Ward 5 plan. The main elements: conversion of an existing Education Campus or other available building into a stand-alone arts and world language middle school; a PS-8 school with an IB program, and a STEM middle school housed at McKinley SHS. It would require closing at least three existing ECs in the ward. More to come on this.

The plan is on the DCPS site here.
