Coalition Calls for Community Discussion on Measuring School Quality in Denver

Community Voice in School Quality Coalition, a group of 12 diverse organizations from across Denver who represent community institutions, students, families, school leaders and teachers, has sent Denver Public Schools (DPS) a letter calling for a community discussion on how to measure school quality in Denver.

The letter asks DPS to commit to engaging communities in robust conversations about how Denver measures school quality and builds new ways to support families understanding of school performance. The letter states the importance on having these conversations anchored in the community and not far away at the state level. It is essential that any changes with measuring school quality are in public view so that trust can be built into any approach. Most importantly, a community conversation can help create a collective vision for how to address the deep inequities in the school system.
