What People Are Saying

"Every Learner Thrives. That is our commitment to students, families, staff, and our entire DPS community. We must work to improve the student experience, the adult experience, and the system experience - by disrupting, dismantling, and redesigning our systems to ensure equity- and we must do this with transparency, honesty, vulnerability, and a willingness to be bold with our expectations. We are dedicated to nurturing the whole child, and we will continue to strive to get better every day- our promise as always is to get better at getting better.

With our DSA expansion, we look forward to moving in a positive direction toward our goals. Thanks to the bond premium dollars invested into this project, we will be able to deliver a more equitable experience for students in the arts."

Superintendent Dr. Alex Marrero
