2021-2024 Strategic Roadmap
Excellent Schools. Ensure that DC PCSB decision-making responds to citywide need and results in improved outcomes for all DC students, especially those in historically marginalized groups.
Enduring Partnerships. Strengthen dialogue between families, school communities, and residents to create a shared understanding of our work, solicit feedback, and develop new partnerships across DC.
Effective Organization. Align our internal structure, processes, and culture with our strategic plan to allow DC PCSB to create the conditions for student success in DC.
Our Commitment to Race, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Work
Grounded in our race, equity, diversity, and inclusion (REDI) work, we pledge to take time to reflect, listen, and hold space for one another in service of our mission. We are united in the following beliefs and commitments that will guide our authorizing work moving forward:
We acknowledge the prevalence of interpersonal, institutional, and systemic racism in our country
We seek to understand the collective impact of racism and inequity on public education and our role in perpetuating these harms
We believe an excellent school is equitable
We work to eliminate the impact of racism and inequity on students as DC’s public charter school authorizer
We commit to continuous learning about ourselves, our work, and our city to inform our policies, practices, recommendations, and behaviors
We engage all voices in our decision-making process thoroughly and consistently, and we embrace discord that can come when people share their personal experiences and perspectives on our work
