What does accountability mean in DPS?
Accountability is one of the district’s shared core values, which means it lives at the heart of all of our work. In DPS, we take responsibility for our individual and collective commitments. We grow from our successes and learn from our failures as we strive for continuous improvement.
What happens if schools persistently receive low performance ratings?
When schools do not meet expectations for academic growth and achievement on the School Performance Framework, DPS provides intensive support to help them get back on track. If schools are still not able to show improvement after significant support efforts over time, we believe that the students served by these schools deserve a major change in their learning environment. In this situation, a restart or closure may be needed to give students their best opportunity for success.
