Meet Jana Lemons, DCSRN Parent

Jana, a Ward 8 parent, had already begun to conduct her own research into possible schools online when she came across a flyer for DCSRN’s services in her apartment building. She called the office right away and became connected with her parent advocate. Jana wanted to tap into DCSRN’s in-depth knowledge about quality public schools in DC, and felt that conversations with her advocate gave her more insight regarding school culture, teacher quality, and the school’s academic performance, ultimately helping her make the best decision for her son Chase. Read their full story here.
