You've completed a My School DC application, which is the first step. Now it's time to enroll. Here's how.

If your child is matched with a school through the lottery for the 2024-25 school year, you must enroll your child at their matched school by May 1, 2024. If you do not enroll your child by May 1, 2024, you may lose your space at that school. To accept an offer off a school's waitlist, you must enroll your child by the school's communicated deadline. 




Complete enrollment



Enrolling in a new school confirms three things: (1) that you are accepting the space at the school; (2) that you are giving up your child’s space and feeder pattern at their current school (you will still maintain rights to your K-12 DCPS in-boundary schools); and (3) that your child will be removed from the waitlists of schools on your My School DC application you ranked below the school at which you are enrolling.
