MySchool DC EdFEST 

Saturday, Nov 22
DC Armory
11:00am – 3:00pm

My School DC is the common application and lottery for the District’s public school options, both DCPS and charter. As we prepare for the SY15-16 application cycle, we would like to stay engaged with partners like you across the city. We hope you’ll join us in keeping families informed about the lottery process. We will send out this newsletter monthly, with occasional updates in between.

Right now we are busy planning for EdFEST, the District’s only citywide public school fair. It’s a great way for you and the families you serve to learn more about school options (PK3-12) and how to apply. EdFEST takes place on Saturday, November 22 from 11am to 3pm at DC Armory.

With the launch of the My School DC application on December 15, 2014, EdFEST is a timely event to help families make informed school selections for the SY215-16 common lottery. And both admission and parking are free! We will also have interpretation available in Spanish, Amharic, French, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and in sign language throughout the day..

Visit for more information about My School DC, including the dates for next year’s lottery and the list of participating schools. You can also contact us via the My School DC Hotline at (202) 888-6336 or

You are invited to join us for a panel discussion with a focus on the benefits and challenges of implementing language immersion programs in our public elementary schools – both charter and traditional public schools.
