We wanted to provide an update on our discussions with the Denver Classroom Teachers Association on reaching a new contract and ending the teacher strike.
The two sides have spent the day at the bargaining table, having productive conversations toward an agreement. The talks are still continuing into the evening, and we will continue to provide you with updates. Please check back on DPS’ Facebook and Twitter pages for updates throughout negotiations tonight, and we’ll share an outcome of the meeting as soon as it concludes today.
All DPS schools will be open tomorrow, regardless of the progress of today’s negotiations. Preschool (ECE) classes will be canceled again tomorrow if teachers are still on strike. We will notify these families in the event preschool classes resume tomorrow.
We appreciate the work and dedication of the staff all across the city who have been critical to keeping our schools open this week. And we also appreciate the support and understanding of our parents and community members.
We will continue to provide updates as developments occur.
