DPS is considering asking voters to support a bond initiative and mill levy override in 2020, and we want our educators to have a voice on where and how these funds would best serve current and future students! The 2020 Community Planning and Advisory Committee (CPAC) will play a critical role in creating recommendations on future updated buildings and play spaces, improved technology and other essential investments that will ensure quality learning environments for all students. We are accepting applications from members of the DPS community, including parents/guardians, students, educators, community members and alumni. Access the application – which is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese -- and get more information here.
