Notice of Petition to Amend Charter: Enrollment Ceiling Increase – Capital City PCS
The District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB) announces an opportunity for the public to submit comment on a written request submitted by Capital City Public Charter School (Capital City PCS) on May 3, 2019 for a minimis enrollment ceiling increase of 20 students effective for school year (SY) 2019-20.
Capital City PCS is currently in its nineteenth year of operation educating students in grades prekindergarten-3 through twelve across three campuses that share a single facility in Ward 4. Given the school has an increasingly larger special education population, of which several students attend a nonpublic placement, Capital City PCS is requesting an enrollment ceiling increase of 20 students, from its current maximum ceiling of 1,000 students, to a new ceiling of 1,020 students effective for SY 2019-20 and beyond. This increase will ensure the school is able to maintain full enrollment without going over its enrollment ceiling, when Capital City backfills from its waitlist to replace vacant seats due to student with disabilities going to a nonpublic school.
Pursuant to the School Reform Act, D.C. Code 38-1802 et seq., a charter school must submit a petition to revise its charter, which includes its enrollment ceiling.
