We created the Tiered Support Framework to help ensure great schools in every neighborhood, which is the number one goal of the Denver Plan 2020.
The framework is DPS’ way of making sure that the schools with the biggest challenges receive the most intensive support, while also helping all schools work toward continuous improvement.
We believe that there is a basic investment of supports (people, time and/or money) that all schools need to be successful.
Within the Tiered Support Framework, the schools with the highest needs receive the most intensive support to help them reach their urgent student achievement goals.
All supports must be designed in response to the unique needs and Unified Improvement Plan of each school, and honor any flexibility decisions a school has made.
