Get Involved in the 2023 Boundary Study

We want to hear from you! Below are opportunities for community members to get involved.

Advisory Committee on Boundaries and Student Assignment

The Advisory Committee on Boundaries and Student Assignment is a group of education stakeholders from all eight wards of Washington, DC who will meet monthly in the evenings through January 2024 to create recommendations for attendance zones, feeder patterns, and school assignment policies. Learn more about their work and view meeting materials posted on the Advisory Committee section of this site.

The next Advisory Committee meeting is scheduled for December 5, 2023

School Meetings

The DME is meeting with school communities that may be significantly affected by a boundary and feeder pattern revision scenario. These will be determined as the scenarios are developed and information becomes available from the Master Facility Plan 2023. The content at the school meetings will focus on school boundary and student assignment-related challenges specific to the school or school communites. Members of the public may provide feedback and testimony about potential solutions including the establishment or modification of school attendance zone boundaries. Learn more about school community specific meetings at the School Meetings page of this website.
