What's New with DCSRN?

HQSC Surpasses Applicant Goals! 

For the past five years, DCSRN has exceeded all goals for the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC). DCSRN has just completed the 2016-17 HQSC and is once again on track to surpass previous years' results. DCSRN not only supports parents with completing the common application, but assists them in identifying and applying to quality schools. Though the campaign is far from over, DCSRN recuited families representing over 1100 students and provided support to partner organizations from some of the most underserved communities in the city. This month, DCSRN prepares parent advocates for a successful enrollment period, beginning when lottery results are announced on March 31. Check back soon for updates on the next phase of this year's HQSC!
