Fillmore School Funds Restored

The Fillmore Center for the Arts has had its full funding restored, saving jobs from being cut and preserving the chance for District students to deeply engage in the arts for another year. D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson announced the restoration of funding last week given the “recent, positive changes [to the] budget outlook for Fiscal Year 2014.” Parents were alarmed at the possibility of budget cuts, and there was even an online petition started from the Friends of Fillmore to urge Henderson to change her mind about funding.
