Since the beginning of this school year, many public charter schools have been offering limited in-person programming to students most at risk, students with special needs and disabilities, and the children of frontline workers.
Today OSSE announced that 76.6% of public charter students graduate in four years in school year 2019-2020, a slight increase of 0.2% from 2018-2019. The four-year adjusted cohort across DC consisted of 4,802 students who entered ninth grade in the 2016-2017 school year.
The response to the pandemic and the continued use of social distancing measures to protect public health will require schools to be prepared to provide both in-person and distance learning for the 2020-21 school year.
