All About Equity

    During the 2019-20 school year, District #61 leaders worked with parents, school principals, teachers, staff, and community members to review existing elementary school boundaries. DPS school boundaries haven't gone through a thorough evaluation in nearly 25 years, so it was time for a review to make sure we're best meeting the needs of all our DPS families. 

    We know that several of our schools are either well over or well under capacity, which is one reason we consolidated schools. We also know that change can be difficult and frustrating, and we certainly would not have made these changes if there was not a need for them. However, we're working to address long-standing issues within our buildings to create the best possible environment for our students to learn. Now is the time to make boundary changes. We're making BOLD changes in DPS facilities through 2023, allowing us to provide all students with an equitable learning experience, no matter where they live in the District, and to create a more sustainable future for District #61.
