DC School Reform Now is educating, organizing and advocating to build support for public education strategies that prepare kids to become college and career ready.

HQSC Results

The results from the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC) reflect DCSRN’s growing understanding of the nuances of the DC public school choice sector and, in particular, how these nuances impact underserved families. Read the 2012-13 HQSC Final Report to learn more.


  1. At least 50 percent of families that DCSRN identified through partner schools complete applications to quality schools; and
  2. Encourage at least 50 percent of families to accept offers received.

The HQSC exceeded these goals two years in a row, and as a result DCSRN staff and board members focused on expanding the program for the 2013-14 academic year. Results of the 2013-14 HQSC will be posted in the fall of 2014.
