Registering as a School Program Provider (SPP)

The first step to becoming a DCPS Partner is registering as a School Program Provider (SPP).

What is a DCPS School Program Provider? 

A School Program Provider is defined as an organization that:

  • Provides its own programming directly to DCPS students

  • Works with students 3 or more times per school year, AND

  • Is NOT a Health or Mental Health Provider*

*Any organization that provides health services or screenings (including physical health, mental health, or programming for expectant and parenting students) must complete a separate application process through the Student Wellness Division. Start by visiting the Health and Wellness page or Student Mental Health Support page to learn more. Please do not complete the School Program Provider Application.

What is the School Partnerships Database?

Each DCPS SPP has a profile in the School Partnerships Database. The database is used to:

  • Share information on your organization and programming with schools who may wish to partner with you. 

  • Ensure all SPPs are aware of DCPS requirements each year and receive important communication. 

  • Provide a snapshot of organizations operating in DCPS schools to capture the breadth and importance of partner engagement. 

You may access and update your partner profile at any point with your unique Partner ID.
