For almost 20 years, the Denver Public Schools (DPS) has focused on developing great schools with strong, supportive staff and improved achievement for our students. While our trajectory has been upward, our progress has been incremental, and we have only moderately narrowed gaps between student groups. Our district has failed to provide the majority of our students with learning environments that allow them to thrive while they are with us, and accomplish their dreams after they graduate.
In this strategic roadmap, we begin a new era that allows us to get better at getting better. We will center our students, while also elevating the experience of our adults. We will recognize the role of our system in creating equity in education and justice in society. Thank you for being a part of this journey to turn our vision that Every Learner Thrives into a reality.
Every Learner Thrives
Educational equity is our collective responsibility. We prepare students for career, college and life. We create conditions and partnerships where students, families and team members belong and thrive.
