Dear Team DPS,
As we prepare to leave our schools and buildings for winter break, I want to thank our students, families and staff for a strong finish to the first semester of the 2022-23 school year. It truly takes a village, as they say, and our district is full of passionate, dedicated educators who go above and beyond in their roles every day for our scholars. I also want to share my appreciation for our families who are our scholars’ greatest cheerleaders and entrust us with the tasks of ensuring all students feel welcome, safe and supported at our schools -- thank you.
In looking ahead to our spring semester, there is a lot to accomplish together, including continuing the work laid out in the Strategic Roadmap. I am committed to engaging, collaborating and partnering with our community members to improve our student, adult and systems experiences.
Enjoy celebrating the holidays with your loved ones, and I look forward to seeing you in the new year!
Dr. Alex Marrero,
