On March 21, 2023, the D.C. Policy Center’s upcoming work on a D.C. school boundaries study was reported by HillRag:
The public has a chance to opine on changes, Kihn added. There will be three rounds of District-wide townhalls, an Advisory Committee, engagement with school-specific communities, a boundary study website for information sharing and collecting feedback and ongoing participation at meetings and events. The process is modeled on the last adjustment to boundaries, undertaken in 2013-14.
DME has contracted with a team led by Perkins Eastman, including WXY Studio, LINK Strategic Partners and The DC Policy Center to support both studies. They will hold three rounds of District-wide town hall for both the Boundary Study and MFP 2023 over the course of the year (spring, early summer, and fall). School communities and residents will be encouraged to attend. Information regarding the townhalls will be posted on the DME site and shared via social media.
