Officials from Monument Academy and the Community College Prep Adult Education are holding an information session for the public on their plans for the former Gibbs Elementary School. The Rosedale Community Center at 1701 Gales St. NE will host the meeting at 6 p.m. Monday.

CCPA will assist adults looking to attend community college. Monument will serve as a residential school for children in foster care.

Gibbs Elementary, located at 500 19th St. NE, has been vacant since 2008. A total of three schools bid for the property through the D.C. Department of General Services, as Hill Now reported. CCPA and Monument were selected in December, The Washington Post reported.
