On Nov. 13, Superintendent Susana Cordova announced she will be stepping down after two years as our district’s first Latina superintendent, and more than 30 years as an educator and leader in DPS. 

This departure means that DPS is now engaged in the search for a new district leader who understands the past, present and future of DPS and who will drive the district forward in our pursuit of Equity as our core identity.

The Denver Board of Education will select an interim superintendent in December, and will subsequently share a timeline for the new superintendent search. Engagement with our staff, families, students, and community will be the top priority throughout this process.
