Long-Term Safety Plan

Final Version 3.0

DPS implements comprehensive policies, procedures and protocols that establish, promote, and maintain the physical and psychological safety of our students, staff, families and other members of the Denver community who visit our schools and campuses. In response to recent incidents of violence throughout the Denver metro area, we have spent almost three months learning from our students, families, staff and community about how to improve our safety policies, protocols and practices. We have used that input, along with expertise of our Climate and Safety department, our staff and others around the country to develop this Long-Term Operational Safety Plan. As you will see in the plan, safety is a layered approach that encompasses many different areas including mental health supports, training within the existing work day, technology, buildings and systems.
