DCP Update

We have eliminated the requirement for registration by December of the 9th grade year, beginning with the class of 2018 (current 9th grade students). This will lessen the work of the dedicated DPS staff who were handling much of the registration responsibilities. It will also eliminate the problem, beginning with the class of 2018, of DPS graduates who were not eligible for the scholarship because they neglected to register. In its place, we will have optional programming for 9th grade students to inform them about the program and get them more excited about their educational future.
