This chapter focuses on the number of facilities or buildings that DCPS and public charter schools operate. Some facilities house more than one school and some schools are dispersed across multiple facilities. Colocated facilities are those that house two different LEAs. In SY18-19, there were 216 public school facilities in the District, an increase from the 197 facilities in SY13-14. Congress Heights (Cluster 39) and Crestwood/Petworth (Cluster 18) were home to the most public school facilities, with 18 and 16 located in each cluster, respectively. DCPS facilities were more spread out across the city, while public charter school facilities were located more in the central northern part of the city and the Congress Heights neighborhood (Cluster 39) in Ward 8.
