DPS is considering asking voters for tax funds to support a bond initiative and mill levy override in 2020. We want our community members to have a voice about where and how these funds would best serve current and future students.

What is CPAC?

The 2020 Community Planning and Advisory Committee (CPAC) will play a critical role in creating a bond and mill levy package that would go before Denver voters in November of 2020 if approved by the Denver Board of Education. Members of this committee will examine the needs of schools across the district and work together to prepare recommendations on updating buildings and play spaces, improving technology and other essential investments that will ensure quality learning environments for all students.

Who can apply?

The CPAC will be comprised of members of the DPS community, including parents/guardians, students, educators, community members and alumni. We’re seeking 60 total members for the 2020 committee who come from a diverse array of neighborhoods, professions, and life experiences to ensure representation of our city and the families served by DPS.

What is expected of committee members?

Members are expected to attend five full CPAC meetings and four to six subcommittee meetings from January to June of 2020. Members are expected to come to the committee ready to collaborate in helping DPS to achieve our goal of Great Schools in Every Neighborhood.

How do I apply?

See here for the CPAC application — available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese — and more details. The application will remain open until Nov. 22, 2019 and the selection process will take place by December 13. Please contact robin_pulliam@dpsk12.org with any questions.
