In June, DCSRN hosted the kick-off meeting for the research partnership with the Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE). Over the course of this three-year research partnership, made possible by a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, CRPE will study DCSRN's leading initiative, the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC). At the conclusion of the study, CRPE and DCSRN will release policy briefs detailing best practices, so that other organizations, policymakers and school districts can learn from DCSRN's work with the public school choice process in the District. Learn more about this exciting research partnership.
