DCSRN Rounds Out the HQSC With More Familes Served Than Ever Before
The common enrollment deadline was Monday, May 1st, marking the conclusion of the 2016-17 HQSC. Based on preliminary numbers, DCSRN is proud to share that this latest campaign was successful for the sixth year in a row. Thanks in part to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, DCSRN was able to double the amount of families served in their pursuit of quality public school options for their children, leading to more matches and enrollments than ever before. Support DCSRN in continuing to promote equitable access to public school choice for all!
DCSRN launched the virtual school tour of Dorothy I. Height Elementary School, a quality traditional public school in Ward 4. Watch as excited kindergarten students discover the letter "H," learn how to use everyday objects to make creative pieces of art, and hear Principal Masi Preston explain her vision for all students to become global competitors.
