Over the last year, the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) and District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) led a comprehensive review process of the city’s student assignment policies, including DCPS school boundaries. The process culminated in a series of recommendations made by the DC Advisory Committee on Student Assignment. In August 2014, the Mayor and Chancellor fully adopted and approved the recommendations. Mayor Gray further requested that DCPS and DME collaborate on a plan that outlines for the public what steps will be taken to implement the recommendations made by the Committee. This document and the accompanying Implementation Chart outline the changes that families can expect for next school year and lay out the major milestones for the implementation of each recommendation.
