Class of 2020

DCPS is partnering with the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) to evaluate graduation requirements. An update will be shared with our families as soon as it is available. Students in grades 8-12 are also encouraged to explore virtual community service opportunities during this period of learning at home.


Beginning this week on March 25, the District will add 10 meal sites for all students, bringing the total meal sites at DCPS buildings to 29 across the District. These sites serve lunch and a shelf-stable breakfast for all residents under the age of 18 on Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. A full list of meal sites can be found at 

One of the resources for families on this site is Clever, which is DCPS’ gateway to many of our digital learning applications. Visit to access the programs used by grade in school. Students will login using their student ID and password.

First Class: The Legacy of Dunbar, America’s First Black Public High SchoolDunbar High School defied the odds and in the process changed America. In the first half of the twentieth century, Washington D.C’s Dunbar High was an academically elite public school, despite being racially segregated by law and existing at the mercy of racist congressmen who held the school’s purse strings. The school’s well-educated teachers developed generations of high-achieving African Americans, groundbreakers that included the first black member of a presidential cabinet, the first black graduate of the US Naval Academy and the legal mastermind behind school desegregation. Today, as with too many troubled urban public schools, the majority of Dunbar students struggle with reading and math. But there is hope with the opening of a brand new $122 million facility that will bear the Dunbar name.
