Announcement: New DME Edsight about public school lottery waitlists
The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) released a new Edsight that describes how My School DC lottery applicants can enroll in a school based on lottery results and the rates at which they do so. Almost half of all students in SY2018-19 declined their initial matches and waitlist offers to enroll.
Check out the latest Edsight here.
If someone you know would like to receive future Edsight briefs, please email us to be added to the distribution list firstname.lastname@example.org.
