Enrollment Requirements by School

If you received a match in the lottery or an offer off a school’s waitlist, you will need to follow the school’s enrollment procedures which include:

  1. Proving DC residency;
  2. Completing all of the school’s enrollment requirements; and
  3. Submitting up-to-date health forms


Important: If you were matched to a school in the lottery for school year 2023-24, you have until May 1, 2023 to enroll your child at their matched school. If you do not enroll your child at their matched school by that date, they may lose their space at the school. Enrolling your child at their matched school will not remove them off waitlists.


Missed the lottery application deadlines? Complete a post-lottery application today. Your child will immediately be added to the waitlists of schools you apply to. Remember that you have a right to attend your DCPS in-boundary school in grades K-12 without an application regardless if there is a waitlist associated with it. Locate your DCPS in-boundary school here
