One Elementary; One Middle School for Stapleton in 2016
DPS identified the following need for additional schools in Stapleton:
“In the neighborhoods of Northfield and Stapleton, DPS is projecting that additional seats will be needed at both the elementary and middle school levels in 2016. It is important to note that there is more than one approach to providing additional seats in schools. Sometimes it makes the most sense to open a new school, and other times it makes the most sense to add grade levels to an existing school or just increase the size of an existing school.” (Click here to view the entire DPS document. Stapleton is on page 6)
DPS will invite families and community members on its contact lists to learn about the proposals submitted at a meeting between April 15 and 29. Check the website for updated information as those dates draw closer: http://osri.dpsk12.org/school-development/
Letters of intent from interested programs are due February 20th. The website above will list the names of proposed schools and the intended grade levels within 48 hours. Final submissions are due March 20. As information becomes available, the Front Porch will post it on Facebook and on our website.
