Meet Tiffany Black, DCSRN Parent
Before connecting with her parent advocate, Tiffany Black felt unfamiliar with the application process. After having it explained to her, she wasn't confident she would be able to navigate the process without guidance and support.
"My parent advocate streamlined the application process for me. I would definitely have had problems going through it on my own," Tiffany said.
With DCSRN's help, three of her children were all matched with her top choice—Achievement Prep, a quality school in Ward 8. Read Tiffany's full story to learn how DCSRN was instrumental in helping her through the application process.
