Campaign Spotlight

Parent Advocate Training!

In preparation for kicking off the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC) this fall, DCSRN held its annual parent advocate training on Nov.5, training potential parent advocates to become experts in the DC school choice application process. DCSRN hosted eighteen candidates this year, many of whom had experience with DC education, parent engagement, and youth outreach. DCSRN will hire eight for this year.  

"The insightful knowledge from the training was extremely helpful. I enjoyed the interactions with the group of prospective advocates as we prepare for another exciting campaign. DCSRN does an exceptional job with informing me and others about steps and actions needed for the application process." - Natasha Ettienne, Veteran Parent Advocate
