A new look for DCPS online

Wow!   The new DCPS Web site and URL make quite the difference.   First to the new URL -- what a concept to make it consistent with the way DC government agencies (with a few exceptions) are known online:   abbreviation.dc.gov.

As for the new look and functionality, both are tremendous improvements.   According to the August 1 announcement, the site redesign reflects user (parent, teacher, students, community members) input over the past two years.   New features will roll out by the end of the year.

Remember that email addresses for DCPS staff use the DC gov format:   Firstname.Lastname@dc.gov.
