What's New with DCSRN?

$750,000 Awarded to DCSRN from W.K. Kellogg Foundation
DCSRN is honored to have been awarded $750,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The grant will expand capacity of DCSRN’s leading initiative, the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC), which helps families primarily in underserved communities navigate the DC public school choice application process. In collaboration with the Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE), the grant will also leverage best practices learned from the HQSC model to share with school districts nationwide. DCSRN and CRPE are thankful to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for their generosity and their commitment to ensuring equitable access to school choice. Read the full press release.
