Councilmember Matt Frumin announced his budget priorities for Fiscal Year 2024, which he transmitted in a letter to Mayor Muriel Bowser. The ambitious priorities seek to realize a “Ward 3 for All” by expanding opportunity and growing inclusive neighborhoods.

As a parent of three DC Public Schools graduates and a longtime education advocate, Councilmember Frumin will always demand strong public schools. From well-resourced classrooms to healthy meals to robust behavioral health support, we can ensure a better public education for our students. To achieve these goals, we must:

  • ensure a transparent, community-informed process that results in fully funded, complete school budgets,
  • guarantee predictable, thriving matter-of-right DCPS feeder patterns in every neighborhood,
  • proactively address overcrowding and under-enrollment in schools and classrooms,
  • support opportunities for academic, social, and emotional enrichment for all students, and
  • renew our focus on teacher retention, growth, assessment, and advancement.
