    The Strategy Office produces transformational change aimed at disrupting historical patterns of inequity in the Denver Public Schools by identifying, designing, and facilitating the implementation of high impact strategies and innovative, best-in-class policies and practices. Through a coherent system of strategic planning, implementation, evaluation and accountability, and continuous improvement and innovation, the Strategy Office supports DPS divisions and the family of schools in ensuring all students thrive by design.

    • Ensuring organizational alignment and coherence across district divisions and schools (creating and supporting systems, structures, routines);
    • Supporting with implementation of critical strategies, initiatives, projects, and grants; 
    • Promoting innovation and best practices within our system;
    • Monitoring the impact of strategic initiatives through measure development, progress monitoring, and program evaluation 
    • Supporting and overseeing accountability for the district’s autonomous schools, which represent one third of all student enrollment.
