School safety resources

Dear DPS Parent/Guardian, 

School safety has been on many of our minds as tragic events have unfolded in our district and across our country. As you may be aware, on March 23, the Board of Education tasked me with developing a districtwide long-term operational safety plan. During the April 17th Board of Education meeting, I provided a high level overview regarding the timeline and opportunities for engagement with our stakeholders. I know your voices as parents/guardians are critical to the development of the long-term operational safety plan. 

With that in mind, today we launched a written survey to gather initial perspectives on your feelings of safety and security as well as your thoughts on what should be the safety priorities for our long-term operational safety plan. This survey is open now through Friday, April 28 at 5 p.m. 

Please complete this survey to share your thoughts and ask your student to do the same:
