If you ask another teammate what brought them to DPS, chances are their answer will have something to do with our kids. Our students are the reason we do what we do every day -- and we have a lot of them depending on us.
DPS has over 90,000 students across our city in about 205 schools. They speak over 170 languages, with 33,500 learning English as a second language. Through DPS Transportation, our kids travel about 17,000 miles in total each day to get to school, where they eat almost 47,000 lunches every day. And through it all, there is one Team DPS to support them along the way.
No matter our role -- from teachers to finance partners to custodians to family liaisons -- we all have an impact on our students.
