Open Enrollment Policy

March 22, 2016

As stated in the School Reform Act, §38-1802.06(a) Enrollment in a public charter school shall be open to all students who are residents of the District of Columbia … and (b) A public charter school may not limit enrollment on the basis of a student’s race, color, religion, national origin, language spoken, intellectual or athletic ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, or status as a student with special needs. In addition, according to D.C. Code § 2-1402.41(1), a public charter school may not limit enrollment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identification. The now named Open Enrollment Policy employs several strategies to ensure that schools are in compliance with these laws.
