Enrollment for Students of Military Families

Enrollment and Placement of Children of Military Families Residing on Military Bases Located in the District of Columbia

DCPS recognizes that school-age children residing on military bases located within the boundaries of the District of Columbia face obstacles to educational success, such as frequent moves and the deployment of one or more of their parents. In order to help overcome these obstacles, and to accommodate the Council of the District of Columbia’s recent passage of the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children Establishment Act of 2012, DCPS issued a Chancellor’s Directive to allow such children to enroll, at any point during the school year, in the school of their choice, pending classroom and/or program availability.

For military families in need of assistance with enrolling in DC Public Schools, please contact Student Placement at (202) 939-2004 or by email at [email protected].
