What will it take to ensure every child thrives in our city?

As superintendent of DPS, Susana Cordova is re-focusing our effort where it matters most: on creating classrooms that are vibrant centers of learning, where caring teachers are engaging their students in rigorous, culturally responsive experiences so that all children excel. Susana’s goal is to create a foundation upon which we can build a stronger future for the entire DPS community. On this site you can learn more about the ways that individuals and groups across the city are launching into action around the three streamlined areas of focus outlined in Susana’s entry plan. Together, we can make sure that in DPS, every single one of our students thrives — by design.
