What will the team contribute to the next Denver Plan?
The “Great FEATs” team (Framework for Equity Advisory Team) is a Superintendent-appointed committee that will ensure equity is at the heart of every aspect of the next Denver Plan and infused in our theory of action, as well as in the plan’s specific goals, strategies, and measures of success. In order to make DPS a district where equity is our core identity, the “Great FEATs” team will focus on ways to break historical patterns of inequity that have resulted in far too few African American, Latinx, and low-income students achieving at high levels.
This team will strive to create a set of recommendations for Superintendent Cordova and the Denver Board of Education that is:
- Achievable with existing resources
- Consistent with the requirements of state and federal laws, contracts, and DPS policies
- Accessible, meaningful and credible to our entire community
- Educationally sound and useful to staff
