Innovation Zone Advocacy

We need your help to educate our community and sustain and protect our Innovation Zones. The Denver Public School (DPS) Board will review and process the status of Innovation Zones in May 2021. This process could impact how our Denver Innovation Zone Schools create innovation plans, receive funding and resources for programming, curriculum, hiring and opportunities, and how much involvement that parents, teachers and
schools have in this process.
