The Denver Public Schools Board of Education supports the right of the public to obtain information about the programs and services of their schools and the district. It is the policy of the Board to make every reasonable effort to disseminate information regarding the operation of the various schools, departments, and the actions of the Board of Education.
Although most activity undertaken by the schools, the district and/or the Board of Education are matters of public record, certain matters are not subject to disclosure in that they are confidential, or disclosure would be contrary to the public interest as defined within applicable statutes or the release of that information is prohibited by law.
Most public records are already available online. Please take a minute to review DPS Facts and Figures before submitting a formal request for records.
Denver Public Schools fulfills an important and responsible role in public education in Colorado. The district, therefore, should lead the way in encouraging valid and meaningful research whenever possible. The first responsibility of the district is the education of children in Denver, and any cooperation with research must occur within the context of this primary obligation. | Data Requests Procedures and Application [PDF]
