Check out this amazing article in the Washington City Paper on the proposal: D.C. Wants to Shutter Washington Metropolitan High. But Students Value Their School. ABC News has also covered the proposed closure: Students fight to save Washington Metropolitan High School as DC tries to close it.

Our Contract

Our collective bargaining agreement with DCPS expired September 30, 2019. While we continue to operate under the current contract, we're in negotiations to improve the contract to ensure both teachers and students can succeed. 

Our contract guides the day-to-day work of educators, protects our rights and clearly defines our responsibilities. It’s vital that we enter these talks with clear demands, and that these demands truly represent the thinking of WTU members.

You can view our current contract here.
