DC students need unprecedented support in the wake of COVID-19.

We must come together for DC students and give them the support and love they need to thrive.


Join the movement to give students their

strongest year yet.

To build the strongest year yet,
we must:

Increase education funding by at least 4 percent so schools can:

  • Create an extended school day, week, and year.
  • Establish new programming, like reading academies, “Social Emotional Saturdays”, and High-Dosage Tutoring.
  • Expand enrichment opportunities, such as field trips, clubs, athletics, internships, and before- and after-care programming.

Commit to reopen all public schools for in-person learning in School Year 2021-22 with family, educator, and community confidence.

Establish school buildings as safe, public vaccination sites.

Build strong re-engagement initiatives so adult students come back to school and improve their long-term employability and economic stability for themselves and their families.

Establish a 5th academic quarter for high school students through the Summer Youth Employment Program. So students must catch up on the critical experiences of high school, create individual college and career plans, get support in completing critical milestones on their path to graduation.
