At DC Public Schools (DCPS), we know that students excel when families, educators, school staff, and community members work together. Our policies and implementation guides set clear expectations about the standards of excellence, as well as what supports DCPS will provide along the way. The Pre-K to Graduation: A Policy Guide for Families provides answers to frequently asked questions about topics including attendance, discipline, grading and promotion, credit recovery, and graduation. We encourage families to discuss this information with their children so that they understand the steps to success. Together, we can ensure that every student is prepared for college, career and life.
