LGBTQ+ Efforts

  • LGBTQ+ Equity is a foremost focus of Denver Public Schools. DPS has long supported the right of students and team members to be out and proud. DPS has marched in the Denver Pride Parade for several years, our policies and protections specifically name LGBTQ+ students, and our LGBTQ+ BELONG group helped the Culture, Equity and Leadership Team (CELT) create LGBTQ+ trainings and supports our LGBTQ+ staff. Many schools have Gender and Sexuality Alliances (GSA’s) and we continue to build more. In 2019, DPS formalized LGBTQ+ support by creating the LGBTQ+ Equity Program Manager position. This position supports all LGBTQ+ efforts across our district.
