Student Empowerment & Support

Photo of a young student in classroom

We set high standards for our students. We expect them to master core materials at each grade level. However, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to education. To make success possible for every student, we provide the support they need.

Take a look at the number of items in this topic, and you’ll get a sense of the depth and variety of services DCPS offers to help students.

This continuum of resources—from special education, to innovative school models, to alternative educational settings—is designed to make sure that every single student in DCPS gets the individualized support she or he needs.
