DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEEDS YOUR INPUT/EXPERTISE! In Denver Public Schools, we believe that every child has a bright future within their reach, and that we need to do everything we can to ensure all students realize that incredible potential. That's why we need all members of the DPS community—parents, community members, students and staff—to get involved and share their ideas about the Denver Plan, a roadmap to success that will outline our goals and how best to achieve them. Updating the Denver Plan will provide additional clarity related to our vision of Every Child Succeeds, define key goals that form the foundation of this vision and identify key strategies that will ensure we achieve those goals. Let your voice be heard! Click here to get involved in the Denver Plan update process.
