Ensuring Every Child Succeeds

The mission of the DPS Communications Team is to inform, engage and recognize the amazing students, families, communities and educators of Team DPS!

Communications strives to provide DPS families with accurate and timely information so they can help their kids achieve academic success and graduate ready for their next steps in college, career and life. At the same time, Communications works to provide colleagues on Team DPS with the information they need so they can focus on our district vision, Every Child Succeeds.

Communications oversees districtwide internal and external communications, including district and school crisis communications; media relations; interpretation and translation services; daily newsletters for staff and weekly newsletters for community; and daily updating of dpsk12.org, social media and The Commons employee intranet. Communications also produces annual publications, assists with coordinating DPS events and responds to requests for records under the Colorado Open Records Act or CORA.

A key focus of the Communications Team is outreach to families whose children are not native English speakers. This includes interpretation and translation services in more than 10 languages, as well as multicultural outreach through our EDUCA newspaper, radio, TV and social media platforms.
