Who We Are
Navigating the public education system in DC can be daunting and complex. The Office of the Student Advocate plays a unique role in the DC education landscape and serves “to make the [public] school system more accessible and to boost parent engagement...and access to resources.”
The mission of the Office of the Student Advocate is to support and empower DC residents to achieve equal access to public education through advocacy, outreach, and information services. In our work, we provide step-by-step assistance for students, parents, families, and community members to be informed, be connected, and be empowered.
