    About Tiered School Supports
    The goal of the Tiered School Supports team is to accelerate improvement in our highest needs schools in order to increase the number of children with access to high performing schools in Denver Public Schools.  We do this through alignment of supports, resources and interventions to a school’s unique needs, and through designing new or innovative district high performing schools. We partner with schools, district departments, network teams, communities and other partners to develop and implement improvement strategies that will result in dramatic gains for all students.

    About the Imaginarium

    The Imaginarium is the official Denver Public Schools Innovation Lab. Our team uses design thinking and research and development methods to facilitate a process to stimulate transformative innovation at the school level and throughout DPS.

    Students, educators, administrators and other members in the DPS community bring ideas for classroom and school level innovation to us, and we help make it happen. If you can dream it, and it is in support of the Denver 2020 plan, we can prototype it!
