Wheatley EC Receives Excellence through Equity Funding

Wheatley Education Campus Receives More Than $35,000 in Excellence through Equity Funding
Posted on 10/06/2017
We are excited to announce that Wheatley has received $35,750 through DC Public Schools’ new Excellence through Equity funding! As we work to close the achievement gap, we will use this funding to innovate our literacy and mathematics programs. We will invest in i-Ready Reading licenses for scholars in grades 4-8 to expand their reading comprehension skills. We will also provide an on-site math coach to increase teacher capacity and commitment to the Eureka math curriculum. By investing in The City As Our Classroom curriculum, our scholars will be able to attend more field trips and learn about their neighborhood and Washington, D.C. Finally, each classroom will receive additional, curriculum-aligned texts to expand knowledge and experience on content and vocabulary.

You can see a full list of the Excellence through Equity funding across all DCPS schools on the DCPS website.
