Our Commitment to Schools

Middle School teacher and student smiling near lockersIn DPS, we are committed to ensuring great schools in every neighborhood. We take responsibility for these commitments and hold ourselves accountable for results.

We are working to create a culture of collective responsibility with our educators and support teams – as well as our families, students and our community – to ensure that Every Child Succeeds. To make this culture shift a reality, we are dedicated to providing families with opportunities to be a part of the school community through volunteer projects, family committees and community events.

Setting the Foundation for Success

We help schools build a strong foundation for success. In particular, we strive to target the instructional practices that make the biggest difference for students, and are working to provide the most impactful supports for whole child development, including essential safety nets for kids like tutoring, interventions or social-emotional supports.

We believe in ensuring best first instruction, so that every student makes learning gains in every lesson. We also recognize the need to address the issue of equity so that all DPS students have the opportunity to reach their goals.

Most importantly, we believe that great people are the key. Our kids with the highest needs deserve the very best leaders and teachers every step of the way.
