Congratulations and Welcome!

Denver Public Schools would like to extend a warm welcome to all new teachers and educators joining us for the 2017-18 school year!  The coming months are all a part of your transition into DPS and we want to be sure you have the information you need.

The district is committed to supporting our new teachers - whether new to the district, new to an assignment or new to teaching - so each is positioned for success in the classroom. For many, the journey begins as soon as you're hired and as early as this summer!

New DPS teachers: You can earn your ELA-T qualification plus a $2,000 stipend while teaching at the 2017 DPS Summer Academy! For more information and to register, please click here.
