DPS Blueprint - New School Development and Beyond
A primary area of focus for the Donnell-Kay Foundation is to help facilitate the creation of new, smaller, high-performing schools that effectively serve students.
Donnell-Kay released two reports in late 2007 urging Denver Public Schools (DPS) to create an array of high-performing secondary schools to replace chronically failing schools currently serving DPS students.
But this strategy isn't limited to Denver. There is an opportunity for districts across the metro area to embark upon a new schools strategy that replicates existing high performing schools and attracts successful new school operators to our community.
To do this well will take bold leadership and a transformation of current operations by school districts and teachers' unions.
