Research and Policy: In collaboration with District agencies, national and local not-for-profits, research institutes and universities, DC Immersion gathers and analyses data with a view to informing the education, economic and workforce development policies of the District.

Knowledge Dissemination: Through the organization of substantive panel discussion and community engagement forums, DC Immersion raises awareness about general and specific issues related to achievement, 21st century skills and programming. Through the production of reports, factsheets, articles and newsletters, DC Immersion increases access to available expertise and information.

Support and Networks: By creating a connective tissue between existing and future programs across traditional and charter sectors, by creating opportunities for know-how sharing, and by providing coordinated access to professional development, teacher sourcing, materials and funding, DC Immersion supports current and prospective administrators and teachers in the delivery, planning and implementation of programs.
