YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO DETERMINE IF CALVIN COOLIDGE HIGH SCHOOL STAYS OPEN OR CLOSES!
This is most likely the best and last opportunity to request as many people as possible who may have an interest in Calvin Coolidge SHS’s modernization which would ensure that it stays open to serve it’s community beyond its 77th Anniversary. Coolidge opened its doors in 1940. We need everyone’s help to get as many signatures onto this petition with hope that it’s effective in stimulating enough Council member votes for getting Coolidge’s modernization funds included in the next DC City Council Budget. If the Coolidge modernization dollars are not included in the next Council approved budget, WE TRULY BELIEVE COOLIDGE WILL CLOSE!! This assumption/calculation is based on where we stand from a planning perspective currently in terms of the Community Working Group (CWG) selected by DCPS as an advisory group for Coolidge’s modernization planning and the fact that the current enrollment sits at 384 (Total Student Body) which has decreased dramatically every year.
We’ve provided helpful and simple instruction below to guide you through the petition signature process.
