A $2.6 million initiative aims to close achievement gap in D.C. schools

D.C. schools with a significant share of struggling students are receiving an infusion of money, part of a campaign to bridge achievement gaps in the District.

As part of a five-year plan detailed by D.C. Schools Chancellor Antwan Wilson in September, the school district will embark on getting all K-2 students up to reading level, narrowing the achievement gap and ensuring that students are challenged and prepared.
