Bard @ Old Malcolm X Survey/Encuesta sobre el sitio de Bard @ Old Malcolm X

Dear Congress Heights Community,

As you may know, DC Public Schools will be modernizing the Malcolm X Building at 1351 Alabama Avenue SE to house Bard Early College High School, a new district-wide high school program. You can read more about this exciting high school program here.

As a part of the modernization process, the DCPS Facilities team has been engaging with members of the school and neighborhood communities in order to consider a variety of stakeholders’ feedback as we select design concepts for the building and site. The presentation of these concepts (, as well as notes ( detailing the feedback, can be found on the project’s website ( Based on this feedback, the project team has elected to proceed with “Concept 2,” which highlights Bard’s exciting performing arts program as the heart of the school building.

DCPS strives to build schools that are centers of learning and community not only for the students and staff, but for the broader community as well. Understanding that this site will be a gathering place for the Congress Heights community, we want to ensure that in selecting a concept design for the site and field, we are considering a broad base of feedback.

The main option that we are looking at for this site is a multi-use space that accommodates a variety of activities for both the school and after-hours community use. This site features a basketball course, a walking/running track, as well as a field striped for pickup soccer games in the center of the track. Though we have also explored placing a regulation sized football field in this site, and while it can fit behind the school, its size does not allow for stands/bleachers, nor does it allow for other diverse uses of this site space. The track/multi-use field option allows for us to both focus on the school’s primary athletics programs, and provide the opportunity for many different kinds of community members to use the space. Before we make a final decision regarding the layout of this site, we are interested to hear what community activities you would like to see take place here.

Please take a moment to fill out this quick survey around the proposed site and its uses. We will have this survey open through Friday, 3/12. Feel free to share with other friends and neighbors, so that we can make sure the Congress Heights community is heard on this matter.


Estimada comunidad de Congress Heights,

Como ya sabrán, las Escuelas Públicas de DC van a modernizar el edificio Malcolm X en 1351 Alabama Avenue SE para albergar la Bard Early College High School, un nuevo programa de escuela secundaria en todo el distrito. Usted puede leer más sobre este emocionante programa de escuela secundaria aquí.

Como parte del proceso de modernización, el equipo de instalaciones de DCPS ha estado participando con los miembros de la escuela y las comunidades del vecindario con el fin de considerar una variedad de comentarios de las partes interesadas a medida que seleccionamos los conceptos de diseño para el edificio y el sitio. La presentación de estos conceptos (, así como las notas ( que detallan los comentarios, se pueden encontrar en el sitio web del proyecto ( Sobre la base de estos comentarios, el equipo del proyecto ha optado por seguir adelante con el "Concepto 2", que destaca el emocionante programa de artes escénicas de Bard como el corazón del edificio escolar.

DCPS se esfuerza por construir escuelas que sean centros de aprendizaje y comunidad no sólo para los estudiantes y el personal, sino también para la comunidad en general. Entendiendo que este sitio será un lugar de reunión para la comunidad de Congress Heights, queremos asegurarnos de que en la selección de un diseño de concepto para el sitio y el campo, estamos considerando una amplia base de comentarios.

La opción principal que estamos estudiando para este lugar es un espacio multiuso que albergue una variedad de actividades tanto para la escuela como para el uso de la comunidad fuera de horario. Este lugar cuenta con un campo de baloncesto, una pista de atletismo y un campo de fútbol en el centro de la pista. Aunque también hemos estudiado la posibilidad de colocar un campo de fútbol de tamaño reglamentario en este lugar, y aunque puede caber detrás de la escuela, su tamaño no permite la colocación de gradas/gradas, ni permite otros usos diversos de este espacio. La opción de la pista de atletismo/campo de usos múltiples nos permite centrarnos en los programas de atletismo principales de la escuela y ofrecer la oportunidad de que muchos tipos diferentes de miembros de la comunidad utilicen el espacio. Antes de que tomemos una decisión final con respecto a la disposición de este sitio, estamos interesados en escuchar qué actividades de la comunidad le gustaría ver tener lugar aquí.

Por favor, tómese un momento para rellenar esta rápida encuesta sobre el lugar propuesto y sus usos. La encuesta estará abierta hasta el viernes 12 de marzo. Siéntase libre de compartir con otros amigos y vecinos, para que podamos asegurarnos de que la comunidad de Congress Heights sea escuchada en este asunto.
