This is welcome news, though, I will be watching the details closely. I clicked along the links to the DC page http://www.opefm.dc.gov/masterfacilityplan.html and this document: http://www.opefm.dc.gov/pdf/master_facility_plan/Dunbar_High_School.pdf It gives a little background on the building and the plan.
facelift? blow it up and start over!
!!! i think they do have big plans. it’ll be interesting to see. I haven’t read what the plans are, but i think it involves actually moving the kids to a different location and doing some extensive work, if rumors are correct.
