Parents in Washington, DC have a high degree of choice when selecting a school for their kids. Currently 43 percent of public school students attend charter schools, with the remaining 57 percent in traditional district schools. However, with so many options parents frequently want and need support determining which schools are the highest quality and are a good fit for their child.
The process for applying to a different school can be complicated and confusing, and some families, especially from underserved communities, struggle with completing the application processes. This puts the children of those families at a disadvantage in accessing a quality school.
DCSRN developed the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC) as a direct response to fill this gap of needed support in DC. The HQSC supports families applying to, enrolling and persisting in quality schools, and DCSRN is the only organization in DC executing this targeted work. DCSRN has spent the last two years developing and refining the HQSC program model and now has enough of a successful track record to grow and support the demand that exists in the city.
