College Success Initiatives
The College Success Initatives team works to create exposure and opportunity to students K-12th grade. With a focus on Postsecondary goals DPS students will explore all options for life after high school so students can dream, plan, and matriculate to their future of choice. This team coordinates events such as the College Application Days, 9th Grade College Expo, DPS Orientation Days, Signing Days, Summer Melt and a number of other events.
We believe all DPS students are capable of reaching their dreams!
