Dear Team DPS,
Today, I want to focus on three things: a question, a claim and a proposition. Before I dive into that, it seems useful to take our pulse. Perhaps you’ve noticed that DPS has been in the news lately. The purpose of this piece is not to criticize those who have an outside view of our organization. It is to share that as we are working collaboratively alongside our students, families, community, Board of Education and team members, we know it is best to keep our focus on what we are trying to accomplish -- to get better at getting better. Our challenge is that there is much debate and little consensus on how to consistently achieve that.
