Dear Team DPS,
Our students’ classroom experience is our top priority, especially considering that the pandemic has taken so much classroom time from our scholars. Unfortunately, like school districts across the country, we are right now faced with a severe guest-teacher shortage that is impacting classrooms and students across the district.
Today, I am asking Team DPS members who work in central-support roles for your help to put Students First and support our scholars and classrooms.
Those who choose to answer the call and support as a guest teacher or paraprofessional will earn extra-duty pay of up to $25 an hour -- on top of your normal salary -- for going above and beyond in support of our scholars and our schools.
Please watch this video message to learn more details and hear the importance of this effort. You can also learn more about this opportunity on The Commons.
We all came to DPS to put Students First, and there’s never been a more important time to do so.
Dr. Alex Marrero
