The school moving into the former Intelsat headquarters at 4000 Connecticut Avenue has hosted a few open houses and meetings for the parents of prospective students. Its meeting this Wednesday is for the community.
Members of the Whittle School & Studios leadership team, as well as Council member Mary Cheh and ANC 3F Commissioner David Dickinson, will be on hand to give an update on the school’s plans for renovating the campus, managing traffic and educating as many as 2,500 students.
The meeting is 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 7th at UDC’s Windows Lounge (Building 38, 2nd Floor)
It’s been 7 months since the Whittle School’s previous community meeting. Questions about traffic were inevitable, given its plans to serve 2,500 students from K3 on up to 12th grade. At the time, the school said it was conducting a study to determine the best way to handle pick-up and drop-off traffic.
Whittle representatives also said they planned to open the school’s gym and theater for community use, provide grants to other schools, and offer financial aid to around 300 students.
