DC Public Charter School Board voted 6-0 to approve a charter renewal for Washington Math Science Technology PCS on Monday night, during a public hearing at Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School.
WMST PCS is a high school that began operating in 1998. PCSB recommended its approval based on the school’s overall academic, compliance, and fiscal performance. The board was unanimous to approve the renewal, congratulating the school for its success so far.
During its 5-year review in 2002-2003, PCSB determined the school’s academic data records were insufficient and therefore had only met one of eleven academic goals. But the school, in NE on Bladensburg Road, corrected itself by late 2004.
During its 10-year review in 2008, PCSB determined the school had met all performance standards. In this review, PCSB noted the school’s performance on the DC-CAS (74.68% of the school’s students scored proficient on the DC-CAS in mathematics; 64.56% of students tested proficient in reading).
