Navigating Denver’s Next Journey: Community Feedback


On June 11, A+ Colorado hosted a forum, bringing together experts, community members, teachers, and families to discuss the greatest questions, challenges, and opportunities facing Denver Public Schools. Attendees participated in one of four sessions on a unique investment made by DPS over the past decade to take stock of where we’ve been and what lays ahead. The sessions covered the following topics: 1. Eliminating Academic Inequities 2. Community Partnership in School Improvement 3. Choice in a Gentrifying City and 4. Communicating “Good” Schools: to Families. During each session attendees wrote down comments about each topic. Attendees also “voted” on which comments resonated the most. The comments are all presented in the attached memo which was sent to Denver Public Schools’ Superintendent Susana Cordova on July 15.
