Washington, D.C. — The D.C. Public Charter School Board (PCSB) will host a community forum and enrollment fair on Thursday June 2, 2011 at 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm for the families of Nia Community Public Charter School at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, 4103 Benning Road, NE, Washington, DC 20019. 
 
The PCSB revoked the charter of Nia Community and the school will close at the end of the current school year.   As part of the Board’s closing procedures, the PCSB hosts community forums and enrollment fairs for families to help them find new schools for the next school year. 
 
Representatives from the PCSB will be available to address questions and concerns about the charter school closing processes currently underway for Nia.  School representatives from selected charter and DCPS schools will share information about their programs and provide enrollment applications. 
 
Nia Community is one of the 52 public charter schools that the D.C. Public Charter School Board currently oversees.   Public charter schools now serve approximately 39% of all public school students in Washington, D.C.  Learn more about PCSB at www.dcpubliccharter.com
