MOU by The Urban Institute
August 24, 2011

Urban–Greater DC   (Washington, D.C.)

In 2009, District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) requested that the Urban Institute, along with the 21st Century School Fund and the Brookings Institution, provide technical expertise in forecasting the projected DCPS student enrollment by grade/by school for SY2010-11. To support this work, this research proposel from the Urban Institute requested student-level data from the 2009 official October count. In addition, it asks permission to use six years of October count student-level data (SY2003-04 through SY2008-09) that Urban Institute already held in its confidential data warehouse.
