Spring 2020 Update

In just a few short months, life as we know it has changed significantly and there has been no exception at Democracy Prep. We have moved all learning online across our entire network. Within a matter of days, our school mobilized to distribute more than 600 devices to scholars and ensured they all had access to WiFi by either helping them connect for free a local cable/internet service or by providing MiFis to the family for free.

Our team has displayed incredible adaptability and innovation during an uncertain time. Our teachers jumped into online teaching without missing a beat which is no small feat. Even though this has been an incredibly difficult time for our country, our school continues to provide teaching, learning, and most important of all, JOY! You can see examples of that joy by searching the hashtag #DPgoesthedistance on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The remainder of the school year will look unlike any other we have experienced, but we will continue to hold our end of year celebrations sacred — even in virtual spaces.

Here’s to closing out the school year and keeping the DPAC community strong!

With much gratitude,
Adam Johnson, Executive Director
