Denver Public Schools Part of Global Initiative to Ensure Student Success
Denver – From Nov. 6-10, Denver Public Schools (DPS), the Asia Society and University of Colorado-Denver are bringing together leaders and institutions from around the world to tackle one of the most critical education challenges today: how to educate all students for employability and citizenship in a global era.
The symposium will highlight DPS’ approach to college and career readiness and its focus on redesigning the high school experience. Denver will be the second U.S. city to host a Global Cities Education Network (GCEN) conference.
Seven countries will be present at the conference, where DPS leadership team members will share perspectives on preparing students for college and career success.
At 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 8, DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg will serve on a panel titled “Building a Pipeline to Success: Ensuring Students are College and Career Ready” which will explore how school districts and communities around the world are developing multiple, versatile pathways for students to allow flexible opportunities for work and lifelong learning.
Interview opportunities will be available. For more information about the symposium and forum, read the official GCEN press release.
