Tell DC Council: DC students need unprecedented support in the wake of COVID-19.
Mayor Bowser has announced that her budget proposal will include a 3.6 percent increase in the uniform per student funding formula and makes positive increases for our students furthest from opportunity.
This is a strong start, but setting our students up for their #StrongestYearYet calls for an increase of at least 4 percent per student and equitable funding to our at-risk students and English Language Learners by increasing funding dedicated to those groups.
We need the Council to go further. Use the form to the right to urge your Councilmembers to build on the mayor’s initial proposed education investments so that our schools have the resources they need to provide an equitable recovery.
