Help Define the Denver Plan
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.

2013-14 Winter Weather Information
The decision to keep schools open or to close them during winter weather conditions is not a simple one, but it is made with one overriding factor in mind: the well-being of our students, their families and staff. It is a good idea to decide in advance how to best keep up with the changes, what childcare arrangements are needed, and how to adjust if schools closed due to inclement weather. Detailed DPS winter weather and snow day information, including information on how families can find out if school is closed, can be found on the transportation website transportation website or on the DPS website.
