Notice of Petition to Amend Charter: Program Replication and Enrollment Ceiling Increase – Washington Latin PCS

May 20, 2019

The District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB) announces an opportunity for the public to submit comment on a request submitted by Washington Latin Public Charter School (Washington Latin PCS) on April 5, 2019 for two charter amendment requests to replicate its program and obtain an enrollment ceiling increase.

Washington Latin PCS is currently in its thirteenth year of operation educating students in grades 5-12 at a single facility that is divided into two campuses - a middle and high school - in Ward 4. As a high-performing Tier 1 school in high demand, the school requests to replicate both its middle and high school programs, and obtain an enrollment ceiling increase to educate an additional 706 students by school year 2025-26. If approved, the school’s total maximum enrollment will increase from its current enrollment ceiling of 758 students to 1,490 students by SY 2025-26. While the school has not yet identified a facility for the proposed new campuses, if approved, Washington Latin PCS will return to DC PCSB later to obtain approval for a new site to locate the proposed campuses.

Note: The June 17 Board Meeting will occur on June 25, 2019.
