How will learning at home impact college admissions for students?

Generally speaking, colleges and universities evaluate students within the context of their high school (and school district). DCPS has consulted closely with our college partners, and they have assured us that colleges will be as flexible as they can be in evaluating student transcripts of future applicants. That said, they asked us to be as clear, concise, and consistent as possible in our grading policies and in the presentation of our transcripts.  

Due to COVID-19, are colleges and universities making changes to their admissions process?

Due to COVID-19 and the limited options for students to take the SAT/ACT many colleges have announced that they will be going test-optional for students applying during 2020-2021. If there is a college or university you are currently considering, check their website or follow them on social media for up-to-date information about admission requirements and to see if they have changed their testing requirements A complete list of test-optional colleges can also be found here.
