This report from DCPCSB  provides an evaluation of public charter school performance in Washington, DC for the 2013 school year. "2013 will be remembered as the year we collaborated with our colleagues at DC Public Schools (DCPS) to launch My School DC – a common lottery that greatly simplifi ed the process for applying to a public or public charter school. Our collaboration with DCPS also produced the first ever DC Equity Reports, which provided
parents with an unprecedented amount of information about the performance of all public schools in DC. Charter schools have continued to add students each year but this year DCPS added students as well, capping a turnaround after a fi fty-year decline. With both systems improving and adding students we are seeing a renaissance in urban education that will bring great benefi ts to our city."
