Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates for Rocketship DC Schools

Latest Update

Updated: June 24, 2020

 

Rocketship DC continues to work with local health and district experts to determine our reopening model and timeline for the 20-21 school year. We will post updates on our plans as soon as possible.

We are exploring ways to offer students distance learning and in-person options.  As public schools, we work with regional, city, and district leaders to follow health, safety, and educational guidelines. In particular, we know that the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) should release their reopening guidance in the coming days. As soon as that guidance is public, we will work to understand the implications it has for Rocketship and will share information with you as soon as possible.
