Superintendent’s Office

Tom Boasberg
Superintendent

Since being unanimously appointed as Superintendent of Denver Public Schools in January of 2009, Tom Boasberg has led the city’s efforts to accelerate the progress of its nearly 92,000 students and better serve the families of Denver. Over the past eight years, the district has posted record enrollment increases (with a higher rate of enrollment growth than any other major urban school district in the country) and increased its four-year graduation rate by over 25 percentage points.

Since the start of the Denver Plan, DPS has gone from being the district with the lowest rate of student academic growth among major Colorado districts to the district with the highest rate of academic achievement growth. The district has also more than tripled the number of its students taking and receiving college credit for Advanced Placement courses. And, it has cut its drop-out rate by more than 60 percent.

Denver has received national recognition during this time for its exceptional leadership development programs for teachers, school leaders and principal supervisors; its school choice program (ranked number one nationally among major school districts by the Brookings Institution); its collaboration among district-run and charter schools; and its creation of promising new schools. During Boasberg’s time as superintendent, the city has welcomed the creation of more than 75 new schools and the closure or turnaround of more than 30 under-performing schools.

Before DPS, Boasberg worked for eight years at Level 3 Communications, where he was Group Vice President for Corporate Development, responsible for the company’s mergers and acquisitions and strategic partnerships. He also served as legal advisor to Reed Hundt, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. At the FCC, he was responsible for devising policies and rules to open up the U.S. and international telecommunications markets to competition. He also played a leading role in the establishment of the E-Rate program, which provides over $2 billion a year to high-poverty schools across the country to pay for telecom and Internet services. Prior to the FCC, he served for three years as Chief of Staff to Lee Chu-Ming, Chairman of Hong Kong’s largest political party, working on constitutional and political issues relating to Hong Kong’s change of sovereignty in 1997. A speaker of Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese, he also worked as a junior high school English teacher in Hong Kong’s public schools and played semi-professional basketball in Hong Kong.

He earned his bachelor’s degree Summa Cum Laude in history from Yale College and a J.D. with Distinction from Stanford Law School. At Yale, he was selected as a Harry S. Truman Scholar.
