We, Denver’s Far Northeast Community Committee (FNECC), invested well over 1000 hours of volunteer time to engage in a process with Denver Public Schools (DPS), facilitated by A+ Denver, to explore options for school improvement in our community. We requested, and DPS provided, a set of best ideas for school improvement in FarNortheast Denver. We considered school turnaround options, testing them with our FNECC Values and Principles that were drafted and submitted to the Denver Board of Education in spring 2010. We actively sought and welcomed input from the community at all of our work sessions. In the course of this iterative work process, we drafted FNECC statements of benefits and challenges and developed a set of commitments for stakeholder actions that we believe will be critical for successful implementation. We, FNECC, submit this report to Denver’s Board of Education as they consider strategies for turnaround in Denver’s Far Northeast schools on November 18, 2010.
