What's New with DCSRN?

 Meet the High Quality Schools Campaign Team 

Due to a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, DCSRN was able to expand the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC), doubling the amount of parent advocates, funding five virtual school tours annually and allowing for the hiring of DCSRN's first Database Manager. With a larger team, DCSRN is thrilled to be able to support more families, especially those from underserved communites, than ever before. Read more about each team member and learn why they are so passionate about helping DC families.

Parent Spotlight: Sharon Butler 

Sharon Butler and her daughter Shantae, a bright eighth grader, are looking for a quality high school for Shantae to attend next school year. Before being contacted by a DCSRN parent advocate, Sharon felt lost as she looked through the high school application. She saw that there were competitive, selective schools, but did not feel informed about the varying criteria for each, and felt overwhelmed when she saw that certain schools even required an essay to complete the application. As the February 1st deadline drew closer, Sharon was elated to take advantage of the one-on-one support through DCSRN. Read their full story to learn how their DCSRN parent advocate was instrumental in helping Shantae apply to several quality high schools.
