What is the difference between restart and closure?
In a restart, DPS will work with the community to find a new, high-quality school to serve students in the same building. In nearly every case, a student will have to option to continue at that school building, but a new team of educators will take over responsibility for leading the school.
DPS would only consider a school closure, rather than a restart, if the school did not have enough enrollment demand to be financially sustainable and there is adequate space at higher-quality schools elsewhere in the neighborhood. If a school is designated for closure, the current students would be given priority enrollment at other neighboring schools during the upcoming SchoolChoice process.
