Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

This afternoon, I announced Dr. Lewis D. Ferebee as the next chancellor of DC Public Schools (DCPS). Dr. Ferebee is a strong educator and leader with a wide breadth of experience as a teacher, an administrator, and a superintendent.

In his work with students, educators, and families, Dr. Ferebee has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to improving student outcomes. He understands the complexities of leading a large urban school district in a growing city. He knows there’s no-one-size-fits-all solution to meeting the needs of our young people. And he has experience building partnerships that ensure more students have a path toward success.

Dr. Ferebee, who is the son of educators and began his career in education as an elementary school teacher, has been leading Indianapolis Public Schools since 2013. In his time there, he has been successful in rethinking how to prepare high school students for college and careers and working to ensure the programs and apprenticeships the system offers are in line with the state’s current and future workforce needs. He also recognized the importance of early learning and significantly increased the number of students in early education programs.

I want to thank Dr. Amanda Alexander for her service and dedication to the entire DCPS community. In February, Dr. Alexander stepped up to lead our schools without any hesitation. She ensured that we were able to finish out last school year strong, continue our improvements regarding data integrity, and begin the current school year better prepared to tackle long-standing challenges.

I also want to thank the Our Schools DC Leadership Committee for their work engaging the community at forums and focus groups across the city, providing me feedback, and meeting with the finalists.

We have an incredibly talented workforce at DCPS. In schools across all eight wards, our classrooms are filled with rigor and joy. The progress our educators have made and continue to make is reflected in the passion our students have for learning.

As we welcome Dr. Ferebee to the team, I am optimistic about the future of DCPS and our community. One of the major benefits of a system of mayoral control with council oversight is that we are better positioned to use every resource available to support our students. By working across agencies, we can set high expectations in the classroom while also ensuring that when our students and families need support outside of the classroom, we are acting quickly as a District to provide it.

In the coming weeks, we will share more information about opportunities to meet and get to know Dr. Ferebee.

Let’s keep working together to lead DCPS into the next phase of excellence.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser
