Prinicipal’s Message: March 24, 2024

Greetings Jackson-Reed Community,

Spring has officially sprung, although the weather may not feel like it. This is a time of year that signals new beginnings and growth, so it’s a perfect time to talk about the importance of enrollment. DCPS enrollment season officially opens later this week on March 29, 2024, and we want all our current 9th, 10th, and 11th-grade families to reenroll by submitting their enrollment paperwork prior to May 1. Early enrollment is essential because it gives us a clearer picture of how we are progressing toward our SY25 enrollment target of 1,932 students and helps ensure we have accurate data for student scheduling.

Regarding student scheduling, we continue progressing and refining our course selection process. Today, we are sending out information on course selection for SY25. Please review and discuss the course descriptions with your child(ren) before they select courses. Our counselors will be conducting class conversations with students prior to their selections and are here to support them. If you have questions, please reach out to our grade-level counselors for more information.

Have a positive and productive week!
