DPS recognizes that the education of each student is a responsibility shared by the district, school and families. Engaging parents, guardians and other members of the student’s family is critical to the success of every student. This includes families who:
- are economically disadvantaged;
- have disabilities;
- have limited English-speaking ability;
- have limited literacy;
- are of any racial or ethnic minority background;
- or are parents of migratory children.
DPS knows that by educating, empowering and engaging our families, we are able to create thriving schools where Every Child Succeeds. Therefore we have a guiding policy to ensure that schools and the district overall commit to deeper education, engagement and empowerment of our families. Below are the links to the DPS Board of Education policies on Family Engagement.
The Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) provides training, events and resources for parents and families to help their children succeed. Through these opportunities, we engage, educate and empower the DPS community.
