DCPS Principal Survey

The D.C. Auditor asked Untold Research to investigate DCPS principals’ thoughts and experiences with high school students graduating without actually satisfying the grade and attendance requirements. A mixed-method study was designed; the survey explored the prevalence of pressures among DCPS principals to inflate or pad student records, feelings about the level of support provided by the Central Office, and thoughts about ways to improve current processes and practices across the District. The survey was followed up with in-depth interviews of principals at each grade level to understand their experiences and thoughts in greater detail.
