Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Washington, DC is a growing city. From sports and entertainment to museums and restaurants, we are a city that has something for everyone—a place where you can walk to work or take the train, hike through Rock Creek Park or ride your bike along the waterfront. We're a leader in tech and innovation. A city where aspiring entrepreneurs can start and grow small and local businesses.

As DC grows, my Administration is focused on ensuring all residents, in every neighborhood, get a fair shot and an opportunity to participate in our city’s prosperity. And we’re always looking for more people to join us in this work.

Want to learn more about joining our team? On Monday, October 22, join me at my Administration's Fall 2018 Resume Raiser. Meet members of my team and learn more about volunteer and career opportunities at DC Government. Learn more and RSVP HERE

No job or idea is too big or too small for DC Government—we function as a city, a state, and a county. From fixing potholes to fighting for statehood, we do it all. Join us.

Opening Next School Year: Bard High School Early College

Our Schools

This week, Mayor Bowser and interim DC Public Schools (DCPS) Chancellor Amanda Alexander announced a new partnership between DCPS and Bard College that will provide students the opportunity to earn college credit and an associate degree from Bard College while earning their high school diploma. Opening in school year 2019-2020, Bard Early College High School will be a tuition-free, four-year, early college high school operated jointly by Bard College and DCPS.

Students who attend Bard High School Early College will have the opportunity to graduate with an associate degree as well as 60 college credits that will be transferable to four-year colleges and universities across the country. The school, which will be located in either Ward 7 or Ward 8, will open with a ninth grade cohort and an eleventh grade cohort, comprised of more than 150 students.

The Bard curriculum includes a two-year pre-college sequence in the ninth and tenth grades and a college curriculum in the eleventh and twelfth grades. The admissions process at Bard will be unique; students will be admitted based on an essay and an interview, rather than test scores or grades.
