Alexa Glatthar, a teacher at Force Elementary, lives Our DPS Value of Students First. Melissa Leach nominated Alexa, saying: "She has the mindset of a learner, always reflecting on her own practices and trying new ideas for her kids."
Today is National IT Professionals Day. I want to take a moment to express my gratitude and appreciation for the incredible work done by the DPS Department of Technology Services (DoTS). Their daily efforts are the invisible glue that holds our technology systems together and makes modern-day education possible.
When we first launched the Strategic Roadmap last August, our goal was to course-correct ourselves onto a path leading toward significant and positive change for all DPS students. We set out to identify systems that do not serve our students, staff and families, and got to work on prioritizing key initiatives, which contributed to increased graduation rates, expanding resources across the Denver community, reaching collective bargaining agreements and so much more.
