A new tool to dig out school data
DCPS unveiled a new "easy-to-use" online tool Monday that it promises will give families unprecedented access to school information as the out-of-boundary school lottery season approaches.
The School Profiles tool, available here , gives parents what officials described as a one-stop-shop for data on academic programs, test scores, community partnerships, demographics and enrollment. It also allows users to customize searches to compare schools.
"This exciting new tool brings transparency to a level we have never seen at DCPS," Interim Chancellor Kaya Henderson said in a statement. "Families now will have greater access to a wealth of information about our schools and greater choice in deciding which DC public school is best for their children."
