WP: CAPCS needs a turnaround

Thanks to P St neighbor John for pointing out this story:

Today’s Washington Post lists the 31 lowest-performing schools in DC that “should be turned around or closed.” (That’s “Tier 4,” or worst category.)

Eighth on the list is “Community Academy Public Charter School Amos III – Armstrong Campus (CAPCS).”

Story by Bill Turque, page B2, or here and the list of worst schools is broken out, to here:

How many times did Wesley Harvey, CAPCS representative, tell the group last week that “No that’s Mr. Amos’ Tier 3 school in Northeast.”

Anyone know what’s correct?

    Here’s the IFF report:

    http://dme.dc.gov/DC/DME/Publication%20Files/IFF_Final_Report.pdf
    – page 70 shows CAPCS as tier 4 and falling math/reading proficiency.

    The yearly dc charter performance report from 2010-11 shows the school as a tier 3:

    For the past couple of years, the electronic sign in their front yard has misspelled “Expectations”
