HQSC Exceeds Applicant Goals! 

DCSRN is proud to announce that the High Quality Schools Campaign (HQSC) is on track to surpass all goals for the sixth year in a row, supporting more families as they navigate the application process than ever before! Though the numbers are still coming in, DCSRN recruited over 1,150 families, and provided crucial support to school and community-based partners from some of the most underserved areas in the District. The work of DCSRN parent advocates is crucial, as advocates not only help families fill out applications, but empower families to choose quality schools.
