In DPS, we are proud to be a Safe and Welcoming School District and we are dedicated to helping Every Child Succeed. DPS embraces our diverse students, families and communities. Equity is at the core of our mission and one of our core beliefs is that diversity is a community treasure. We commit to building a culture that embraces the unique identity and potential of every child.
One of our Denver Plan 2020 goals is to Support the Whole Child, and we engage deeply to ensure all students are healthy, supported, engaged, challenged, safe, and socially and emotionally intelligent. Our district has put policies and practices into place to make sure that everyone in the DPS community has the opportunity to learn and work in an environment where they are treated with dignity and respect, free from bullying or harassment. DPS does not discriminate on the basis of color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, transgender status, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, veteran status or disability.
