DSST, Inspire Placements Recommended

Categories: News

DPS staff recommended to the board that DSST: Conservatory Green High School, which will open next fall with students in grade 9, share space at the Samsonite Campus with High Tech Early College for the 2017-18 school year. There is not enough space on that campus to allow the two schools to share space long-term, so staff also recommended that DSST: Conservatory Green High School move to the Paul Sandoval Campus when a new building is complete in fall 2018.

DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School would not be impacted and would continue in its current location, which it shares with High Tech Elementary School. This move is designed to meet secondary enrollment needs for Stapleton and adjacent neighborhoods. It also meets the commitment that DPS made to place DSST: Conservatory Green High School in the same neighborhood as the middle school.

Staff also recommended placing Inspire Elementary at the Paul Sandoval Campus for the 2017-18 school year until construction is complete on its new building in Stapleton.

The DSST: Conservatory Green High School placement recommendation and Frequently Asked Questions document are available here. The Inspire Elementary School placement recommendation is available here. Details about the Paul Sandoval Campus and these placements are available and updates are being posted at stapleton.dpsk12.org.

Board members will vote Thursday on the recommendations.
