Welcome to the
Board of Education
DPS Board of Education
There are seven members on the Denver Board of Education. Five are elected by voters within five districts; two are elected at-large by voters across the entire city. Board members’ terms are four years and are staggered so no more than four board members are elected in any one election. The Denver Board of Education is the policy-making body for the district. Its powers and duties are established in state law.
Join the Conversation! 2014 Denver Plan Update
In Denver Public Schools, we believe that every child has a bright future within their reach, and that we need to do everything we can to ensure all students realize that incredible potential. That's why we need all members of the DPS community—parents, community members, students and staff—to get involved and share their ideas about the Denver Plan, a roadmap to success that will outline our goals and how best to achieve them. Updating the Denver Plan will provide additional clarity related to our vision of Every Child Succeeds, define key goals that form the foundation of this vision, and identify key strategies that will ensure we achieve those goals. Let your voice be heard!
