The final DCPS School Boundaries Proposal must keep Crestwood children’s right to continue to attend Deal M.S. and Wilson H.S. until there is evidence that the alternate schools are equal or better.

The Crestwood community strongly supports every effort to improve schools across Washington, DC. Every child deserves an opportunity to attend a high quality school and our community would enthusiastically embrace the opportunity to send our children to high quality elementary, middle and high schools within a short distance of our homes.
The burden of the success of this effort to improve DC’s schools needs to fall on the shoulders of the adults who are leading DC's education system; this burden cannot rest on the shoulders of the children of Crestwood. Until Crestwood families have confidence their children are being presented alternate middle school and high school options of equal or better quality than our historic right schools, the children of Crestwood must maintain their historic right to attend Alice Deal Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. Forcing our children to attend a middle and high school that are not high performing, with measurable data that includes test scores, attendance rates, nationally and internationally recognized academic programs, with highly qualified teachers, will be detrimental to our families, our community, and our City.
Before artificially redrawing boundaries to create winners and losers, city school system leaders should redouble their efforts on improving the quality of the schools across the board to guarantee an equal and quality education to every child. Anything less will be a violation of our trust in the public school system and will do irreparable damage to our children’s futures and the future of our City.
