Funding to Support Additional PreK Space in 2023-2024

March 2022

Dear Lafayette Community,

With the release of Mayor Bowser’s Budget, DC Public Schools (DCPS) is reaching out to ensure you and your community understand the implications for your school.

Within the Mayor’s proposed Budget, there is funding allocated in Fiscal Year 2023 to lease space and provide facility improvements dedicated to early childhood education classrooms. The goal with this space is to help alleviate related overcrowding within the Lafayette building. The Department of General Services (DGS) has released a Request for Space (RFS), and we look forward to providing this support for the Lafayette school community starting in School Year 2023-2024.

We appreciate your continued engagement in this process. We look forward to partnering with you in the coming year to support a smooth transition between the two buildings.

Sincerely,

Andrea Swiatocha Deputy Chief, Facilities
