Padres & Jóvenes Unidos Demands Consistent Academic Standards, Forces DPS to Revise ‘Inflated’ Report Cards
Every year, Denver Public Schools (DPS) rates it’s schools. This rating is known as the SPF. The SPF is an accountability tool that families need to assess their child’s school, but it is only as useful as it is accurate. Sadly, this year, DPS’ data misrepresented the gains made by traditionally underserved schools.
Padres & Jóvenes Unidos (along with our allies) delivered a letter to Denver Public Schools Superintendent Tom Boasberg, demanding that the district correct the ‘inflated’ school ratings immediately. Because of our pressure, DPS sent individual reports to parents on how their children were performing. While we condone this as an initial step, it is not enough. We continue to lead the fight to achieve college prep for all students in Denver!
