School Leaders

Great schools need great leaders.LIDlogo_RGB

Denver Public Schools is a large, diverse, urban district meeting the needs of all students through innovative education reform. With the implementation of The Denver Plan, DPS established a strong commitment to finding, growing and keeping great leaders who will uphold our vision, Every Child Succeeds.

We have talented assistant principals and principals, and we invest in our leadership in measurable ways, from our work to articulate clear leadership standards in the DPS School Leadership Framework  to our school leadership pathway programs and intensive leadership development. Our partnership with the Wallace Foundation strengthens these efforts and ensures the sustainability of leadership development in the future.
