Withdrawal Procedure


Students may only be withdrawn from DCPS upon request of the parent/guardian who enrolled the student. Students should provide confirmation of enrollment into another school. Additionally, student information will not be released to the receiving school or unauthorized individuals until documentation required for the withdrawal is completed. For further information on withdrawals, reach out to the withdrawal team (dcps.withdraw@dc.gov).
