#PARCC scores in DC continue to climb. 2.8% in ELA and 2.5% in Math.

It’s a great day in #Ward8. The former @OrrDC has a new building and a new name — Lawrence E. Boone, honoring a man who led the school for two decades.
Was glad to join @MayorBowser, @DCPSChancellor, CM @TrayonWhite and our proud community to open the new home for our Panthers! pic.twitter.com/pMc5MaVZTa
