The My School DC mid-year application is the application for students in PK3 – grade 12 who move into the District or who seek to transfer from their current school to another DC public school (DCPS or charter) midyear. The application is used to apply to all participating schools. No application is needed for K-12 students who wish to transfer into their in-boundary school. Locate your in-boundary school here. The mid-year application period extends from October through mid-March during any given school year.
The mid-year application is ONLY for the 2019-20 school year already underway. The lottery application for school year 2020-21 opens on December 16, 2019.
For the 2019-20 school year, the mid-year application period extends from October 8, 2019 through March 20, 2020. Any student new to DC or seeking a transfer must complete a mid-year application by calling the My School DC Hotline at (202) 888-6336 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
