Southwest Regional Community Meeting: Call for New Quality Schools


Event Date: April 11, 2017

Each year, DPS puts out the Call for New Quality Schools, announcing where new schools are needed and kicking off a quality review process for all applicants, in order to find the best schools to serve our kids.

Learn about the Call in this short video, or visit greatschools.dpsk12.org for more information.

Join DPS Board of Education members from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 11 at John F. Kennedy High School (2855 S. Lamar St.) to learn more about school operators applying to open new schools in the Southwest region.

At this meeting, participants will:

  • Learn how DPS reviewed and approved the new school applicants
  • Learn more about the schools that are seeking to serve students and families at the Southwest Community
  • Understand their vision for the school
  • Engage in questions and answers with applicants
  • Learn about future opportunities to become more involved in selecting the new school

Interpretation, refreshments, and Childcare (age 3-12) is provided at no cost to participants. For questions, assistance and to RSVP, please contact the Public Affairs Office.
