Every Child Succeeds

The Denver Board of Education is the policymaking body for Colorado’s largest school district, and the board’s powers and duties are established in state law. Board study sessions, meetings and public comment take place at the Emily Griffith Campus, 1860 Lincoln St., unless otherwise posted.

With the vision of Every Child Succeeds, Denver Public Schools is guided by our five-year strategic plan, the Denver Plan 2020. This plan sets five goals for preparing Denver’s kids for college, careers and life. See how we’re doing on our District Progress page.
