Board of Education Prepares to Vote on Move to Policy Governance

The Denver Board of Education has been preparing over the past several months for a shift to a Policy Governance model.

This model, recommended by the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB), will establish clear roles, responsibilities and relationships between the board and the superintendent. The board is developing policies for four set categories and will vote on the specific policies under consideration at its Oct. 21 and Nov. 18 meetings.

Community members will still be able to interact with the board as they always have — policy governance does not disrupt that. Public comment and direct communication with board members remain the best way to provide feedback on the board’s vision for DPS.
