Notice of Petition to Amend Charter: New Location and Campus Names - Lee Montessori PCS
SUMMARY: The District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB) announces an opportunity for the public to submit comment on a written notification submitted by Lee Montessori Public Charter School (Lee Montessori PCS) on April 19, 2019 to designate a new location for its recently approved second campus.
Lee Montessori PCS is currently in its fifth year of operation serving students in grades prekindergarten-3 (PK3) through 5 at a single location in Ward 5, and it will add sixth grade next school year to serve PK3-6. On December 17, 2018, DC PCSB approved the school to open a second campus in SY 2019-20, but at that time the school had not yet identified a location for the second campus. Since then Lee Montessori has secured a new facility for its second campus located in Ward 8. Beginning in SY 2019-20, the school plans to name and locate its campuses as follows:
- Lee Montessori PCS-East End (Newest Campus)
2501 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Ward 8
- Lee Montessori PCS-Brookland (Existing Campus)
3025 4th Street NE in Ward 5
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 campus locations.
