Who is eligible to attend an in-person learning classroom?

This message is archived. It is our hope to allow more students, especially those furthest from opportunity, to return to schools and receive the high-quality instruction and critical supports that prepare them for lifelong success.

All students who were enrolled as of October 5, 2020 will be eligible for a seat. DCPS is committed to prioritizing in-person learning seats for students furthest from opportunity. As such, students who fall within the following categories will have preference for the available in-person learning seats:

  • Students experiencing homelessness,
  • English Learners and students with Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs), and
  • Students identified as At-Risk. (This includes students in the foster care system, and students who qualify for TANF or SNAP.)

The process will also give a preference to siblings. Siblings who are members of the groups listed above will be prioritized over siblings who are not members of these groups.
