The Board of Education is the official governing body of the Denver Public Schools district. There are seven members on the Denver Public Schools Board of Education:
- Five are elected by voters within five regions
- Two are elected at large by voters across the entire city
The board members’ terms are four years, and they are staggered so that no more than four board members are elected in any one election. Board members are volunteers and receive no paid compensation for their service.
We are also responding to the COVID-19 crisis by naming the guiding principles and priorities that will put the health and wellness needs of our students, families and staff first and ensure we are supporting our most vulnerable students.
