DC School Policy Areas

The policies affecting the secondary schools of DCPS are posted in the pages in this section.  Currently of interest is the Implementation plan for Student Assignment found under both DCPS and the DME; the Amicus Brief in the Charter Law suit which appears on the DME page and the Education Bills proposed and passed this year by the City Council Committee of Education.  
The State Board of Education is currently reviewing the Attendance Policy passed last year as well as a Parent Bill of Rights. Also under consideration for the new Board which will take office in 2015 are the graduation requirements which include a proposed shift to competency based credit.
