General Feeder Pattern Information

What is a Feeder Pattern?

A feeder-pattern school is a school that a students has the right to attend based on completion of the terminal grade of a student’s current school.  This assignment only happens during the years a student moves from elementary to middle school, or from middle school to high school, or from an education campus to high school.


What is a geographic feeder pattern?

Geographic Feeder Pattern schools are grouped by school boundary and proximity.  Geographic feeder pattern rights extend to students who enrolled in a school through a formal placement as well as to those who enrolled out-of-boundary through the My School DC lottery. Geographic feeder pattern rights do not extend to students who enroll as in-boundary students and then move out of boundary, or to out-of-boundary students to withdraw
