Celebrating the Life and Legacy of WTU President Elizabeth Davis (1951 - 2021)

President Davis was at the forefront of public education advocacy and reform, leading the WTU’s transformation into a social justice, solution-driven organization dedicated to advancing and promoting quality education for all children, irrespective of their zip codes or results of the school lottery, improving teaching and learning conditions, and aggressively amplifying the voice of teachers in the dialogue around issues of teaching and learning. We are confident that her legacy will continue to shape the WTU as well as education across the District.


President Davis' Obituary and the Order of Service for the funeral is available here.

The WTU and DCPS have jointly established a Situation Room to review all matters related to the health and safety of everyone entering any school building.

Report your concerns at http://bit.ly/WTUSafeOpenings

The reporting form is designed to highlight the areas agreed to in a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed by the WTU and DCPS in December to protect the safety of our students and school -based staff. It follows the DCPS Facility Checklist which outlines the protections for student and staff health guaranteed by DCPS. As you click on an area of the form, a drop-down box will appear to allow you to enter comments. Or simply complete the text box at the end of the form. All reports will remain confidential and no identifying information will be provided to DCPS.


Learn more about the WTU/DCPS Situation Room and how to report issues in your school community.

Learn more about the work the WTU and other Unions are doing to ensure our schools remain safe.



DCPS teachers who are not returning to your current schools can find available positions for SY20-21 and SY 21-22 by clicking here.
