DPS, DCTA Agree on ProComp Extension

Mar. 15, 2018

Denver Public Schools and the Denver Classroom Teachers Association have agreed to extend the current ProComp agreement until Jan. 18, 2019.

ProComp is a taxpayer-funded initiative to ensure professional compensation for Denver educators. First approved in 2005, it now provides an additional $32 million per year in teacher compensation. ProComp amounts to approximately one-tenth of the funding DPS invests in teacher compensation each year.

“Denver Public Schools is absolutely committed to providing our educators with the professional compensation they deserve,” Superintendent Tom Boasberg said in a letter today to DCTA President Henry Roman. See the district’s most recent ProComp proposal here.

“We deeply appreciate the economic challenges all of our educators face given the rising cost of living in Denver,” Boasberg wrote. “While cost of living has been rising, Colorado is still funding Denver and the state’s other school districts at a level over $800 million below what has been needed to keep up with inflation over the last eight years. This is why it is so important we come together to increase state funding.”

During negotiations, Boasberg also shared how hard DPS is working in collaboration with other Colorado superintendents to place a funding measure on the statewide ballot in November.

“The entire purpose of this ballot measure would be to reduce class sizes, improve compensation for educators and provide better supports for all kids,” Boasberg said. “If we are successful in placing this measure before voters and winning their approval, we would, of course, significantly increase compensation for DPS teachers.”

ProComp, a joint effort of DPS and DCTA, was seen as groundbreaking when its funding was approved by Denver voters to support professional compensation for educators.
