  • I have tried to reach Shaw with the number listed above which is 202-673-7203, this is not a working number. When I called information they gave me the same number. I am requesting a copy of the passing grade my son (Lester C. Redmond), received in summer school. He is a former student of Stuart-Hobson Middle, they sent him to Shaw to re-take his Algebra class (the summer of 2008) which he took and passed with a B. I need proof of it for his current High School. I hope that you can help me, my email address is [email protected] and my number is 2/862-8965. Please confirm that you received this email and if possible pls. fax his passing grade to me at 202 862-8958. Thank you in advance for your help, time and attention. Vannessa Corley, mother of Lester C. Redmond.
