Superintendent Tom Boasberg, who will be flanked by community members, teachers, and students, is expected to present his district’s new strategic document this morning that will guide Denver Public Schools through the 2020 school year.
And if all goes according to the Denver Plan, as the document is known, in about five years 80 percent of third graders will be reading and writing at grade level, 90 percent of students will graduate on time, and 80 percent of schools will be high performing.
By comparison, today 60 percent of third graders are reading and writing at grade level, 68 percent of students are graduating on time, and 61 percent of schools are considered high performing.
Led by the district’s Board of Education, the updated plan has been a work in progress for months. Today, it all comes together at 11 a.m. at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
You can read the plan here, first. And we’ll have more coverage on the Denver Plan later this week.
