In the month of May, DCPS is partnering with Microsoft to provide online workshops for students and families. This is a great way to learn new skills that will help students finish out the school year strong! It’s quite likely that some of the online tools we’re using this year will be folded into future years, so take advantage of these free trainings.
DCPS recommends these workshops for students in grade two and up. To register for a workshop, follow the given link. Each training will be offered multiple times, so select the dates and times that could work for you. If you have any questions, email .
