Meeting ID: 988 393 0758
*If you know you cannot make the session on Thursday, April 7, please join the meeting for new/incoming families on Friday, April 1, 6:30 p.m. – 730 p.m.
A few important notes to help you prepare for enrollment:
- Enrollment will be virtual again this year so packets must be submitted via DCPS’ online enrollment portal! The link to the portal will be shared soon!
- Packets must be submitted by the student’s enrolling adult, not the student.
- If claiming DC residency, review OSSE’s guidelines and begin preparing for the process. OSSE is very specific about what documents they permit me to accept so review the list thoroughly and start getting your documents in order. Regardless of the documents you use, know that your name (first/last) and address (including apartment number and DC quadrant directional – NE, NW, SE, SW – if applicable) must match EXACTLY across everything submitted.
- As you know, we take residency verification very seriously. As part of our 5-year Corrective Action Plan (SY22-23 is the 5th year, WHOOOO!), 100% of our residency verification documents are audited by OSSE. Providing proper proof of residency during enrollment is absolutely necessary.
Please reach out to me directly if you have questions or need to discuss your specific situation. Have a great day!
