For Prospective New School Applicants
Session #1 Goals:
District-run School: A district-run school has DPS employees and the Principal is hired and evaluated by the district. A district-run school may seek flexibilities around their mission, curriculum, staffing terms, school calendar, school day and other fundamental aspects of their school design. Depending on the type of flexibilities that the school requires in order to operate its model, the school may choose to seek Innovation Status after its approval as a new school by the Board of Education.
Charter School: A charter school is a public school with a governance structure that is independent of the district. Charter schools are incorporated as non-profit entities in the state of Colorado and are overseen by a governing board established directly by the school. Charter schools are publicly funded and are free and open to the public without discrimination or selective criteria. Charter schools have the same responsibility to serve all students and are held accountable through the same School Performance Framework employed throughout the district.
Am I ready for this? Discussion regarding the work involved to develop a new school application by March 22ndand Q&A with school leaders who have recently been approved to open new schools in DPS.
