Ensure Holistic Education
Excellence in math and literacy are our the top priority, but students need educational opportunities that also develop critical thinking, creativity, and social/emotional health. In our pursuit of excellence DPSCD must nurture the whole child.
Amplify Student Voice
Students deserve to have a voice in the policies and practices that they have to experience every day. Positioning leadership opportunities that allow for them to do that ensures DPSCD will develop environments that reflect their needs and that students will grow in their leadership skills.
Facilitate Community Connections
The people closest to our challenges, our own community, has answers, resources, and valuable ideas to develop solutions. It's critical that our broader community is connected to our district and present to support our children and families.
Continue to Positively Change Culture
DPSCD has seen a positive shift in culture so that staff, students, and families feel supported and welcomed as well as have opportunities to provide feedback. There's more work to do to ensure our organizational culture sets expectations for excellence in all areas with students as the number one priority.
