DC School Reform Now is educating, organizing and advocating to build support for public education strategies that prepare kids to become college and career ready.

About the Campaign

Currently, 75 percent of public students in DC attend schools other than their right-to-attend neighborhood school.

Families frequently want and need support determining which schools are of quality and are a good fit for their child. Moreover, the process for applying to a different public school in DC can be complicated and confusing, and some families 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, particularly for families in underserved communities. The HQSC supports families applying to, enrolling and persisting (maintaining enrollment) in quality schools.

The HQSC informs parents about the characteristics of high quality schools and helps parents identify and pursue quality education options for their children. The type of support provided varies for each family. DCSRN’s services include support from a parent advocateparent-focused materials, in-person and virtual school tours, out-of-boundary and public charter application support, school enrollment support and persistence support (maintaining enrollment).
