My School DC released lottery results for the 2023-24 school year today, March 31. Families can access their results by logging into their My School DC family account.
If a family received a school match in the lottery, they have until May 1, 2023 to enroll at their matched school. Enrolling at their matched school will not remove their child off of waitlists.
Families will need to follow schools’ enrollment procedures, which include:
- Proving DC residency;
- Completing all of the school’s enrollment requirements; and
- Submitting up-to-date health forms. (Reminder: All students must be up-to-date on their immunizations to attend school in person. More here.)
Families can also add additional schools to their child’s application at this time by logging into their family account. Their child will automatically be added to the schools’ waitlists. More here.
If you know of a family that did not receive their lottery results, cannot access their My School DC account, or need help understanding their results and next steps, please direct them to contact the My School DC Hotline. They are available Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at (202) 888-6336 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a family missed the lottery application deadlines, they can submit a post-lottery application today. The application is available in English and Spanish. Application instructions are available in Amharic, French, Chinese and Vietnamese and we have a multilingual hotline to support.
Post-lottery applications are automatically added to schools’ waitlists in the order they are received and below applicants who applied by the lottery deadlines. The only exception to this is for applicants that qualify for a lottery preference. Learn more here.
Post-lottery applications cannot be processed until My School DC has lottery results on March 31. If a family submits a post-lottery application prior to March 31, they can log into their My School DC family account on or after March 31 to view their child’s waitlist positions.
Questions? Contact the My School DC Hotline Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at (202) 888-6336 or email email@example.com.
