DC Elementary School Students Deserve A New, Safe School

    1. Petition by

      Parents & Friends of Bruce-Monroe & Empower DC

Earlier this year, bulldozers knocked over Bruce-Monroe Elementary school in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington D.C., with the promise from now-former Chancellor Michelle Rhee and soon-to-be-former Mayor Adrian Fenty that a brand-new school would be rebuilt. By 2011, parents and students were told, a new school would be ready for them. 
 
But City Councilmembers keep postponing any rebuilding plans, while Bruce-Monroe students are stuck at an aging substitute school where they deal with mice, cockroaches, unhealthy air and constant sickness. Meanwhile, a developer has proposed building luxury condos and upscale shops on the site.

Tell DC leaders that a new Bruce-Monroe Elementary school must be built without delay on the former school site (3012 Georgia Ave NW) with sufficient public funding. The City Council, and Mayor Vincent Gray, must identify money in the city budget to immediately start construction on the new school, originally promised to be completed by the Fall of 2011.
