DC Common Lottery

My School DC Logo

My School DC is the District’s common application and lottery for public schools. In an effort to simplify the process for families to learn, apply, and enroll in any DC school, My School DC was cooperatively designed with input from many different school officials, policy leaders, and a council of parent representatives. My School DC serves applicants and schools from all areas of the city with the goals of maximizing matches of students to their most preferred schools and increasing access to centralized school information. Please visit to view school profiles, learn key deadlines, or fill out an application.

My School DC is governed by a Common Lottery Board, with representation from both DCPS and participating public charter schools. The Deputy Mayor for Education is the chairperson of the board. For more information related to My School DC, e-mail [email protected] for a prompt response.
