Dear Stoddert Families,
Thank you to those families who have enrolled your children for SY21/22. Unfortunately, 87 of our current PK4-4th grade students have not yet completed the enrollment process – and I am urging the families of those students to complete the process immediately.
Here’s why: if we do not meet our enrollment projection, one or both of these things may happen:
- Seat offers will be extended to out-of-boundary students who are on Stoddert’s waitlist. If in-boundary students do not complete the enrollment process until after those waitlist seat offers are extended, the result may be large class sizes.
- The district may reduce Stoddert’s resources. In other words, if our enrollment does not justify the number of teachers in our current budget, some teachers may be reassigned to other DCPS schools.
The moral of the story: PLEASE COMPLETE THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS FOR YOUR CHILDREN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
The most convenient way for you to enroll your child for SY21/22 is to complete the online electronic enrollment process. To begin that process, use your computer, smartphone, or other mobile device and go to https://enrolldcps.dc.gov. After you’ve accessed the home page, follow the link to access the enrollment packet.
You will be asked to upload applicable documents, including:
- New students must submit one proof of age. Acceptable proof of age document examples include a birth certificate, hospital records, previous school records, passport, or baptismal certificate.
- All DC residents must prove residency annually. Acceptable proof of DC residency documentation includes: pay stub, DC Gov. financial assistance, certified DC Tax Form D40, military housing orders, embassy letter, DC motor vehicle registration, DC driver’s license/non-driver ID, lease with payment, utility bill with payment.
- Have all your documentation ready for uploading prior to beginning to complete the packet.
- Documents can be uploaded in multiple formats, including pictures.
Several families have asked if students will be allowed to keep their DCPS-issued devices during the summer months – and for most students the answer is NO. The only exception will be for those students who are participating in the Summer Acceleration Academy.
All devices must be turned in at the end of the school year or the end of the Summer Acceleration Academy, so they can be updated over the summer. Devices that don’t receive the updates will not be functional when school begins in August.
As always, we thank you for your continued support and partnership.
