What's New with DCSRN?

DCSRN Proud to Announce $20,000 Grant from The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation

DCSRN is very proud to announce the award of a $20,000 from The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation. The grant will support the expanded High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC), which served twice as many families in 2016-17. Planning and recruitment for the 2017-18 HQSC are already underway, which will support families in some of the most underserved communities in DC as they navigate the DC public school lottery system. DCSRN is extremely grateful to The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation for their continued support of DCSRN’s critical work. Please consider joining them in making a donation to DCSRN!

Meet Tiara Powers, DCSRN Parent

Tiara Powers, a Ward 8 parent, knew that she wanted her son Blake to attend a rigorous elementary school that would allow him to continue to excel, just like his preschool. Unfortunately, Tiara's long hours at a hair salon left her little time to research the lottery process and schools that would be a good fit for Blake. Tiara was delighted when her parent advocate reached out to her and offered DCSRN's support and services, and she seized the opportunity immediately. Her advocate worked with Tiara's busy schedule, and together they were able to identify the best options for Blake. Read their full story here.
