In June, the Denver Board of Education approved the Small Schools Resolution, directing DPS to work with communities throughout the district to consolidate elementary schools with declining enrollment. Declining enrollment has been caused by a decrease in the number of school-age children in parts of Denver, which makes it difficult for the district to fund schools at their intended programming levels.
The Board of Education is committed to working directly with the community to identify ways to counter the impacts of declining enrollment and provide more equitable access to opportunities for you and your family.
There are many details to work through, but we are committed to a robust and thorough community engagement process beginning in the fall of 2021.
