    What is ProComp?

    ProComp is a central component of DPS' total compensation system. It was developed jointly by the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (DCTA) and DPS. 

    In 2005, Denver voters approved funding for the performance-based teacher and SSP compensation system known as ProComp. Visit the ProComp site to learn more about ProComp history and policy. Since then, it has continued to evolve as the national standard for recognizing teacher excellence by connecting your classroom goals to DPS’ 2020 mission, vision, values and priorities
