DPS board expected to approve new schools tonight

The Denver Public Schools Board of Education is expected tonight to approve 12 new schools throughout the city, as well as two new district-run schools at the Kepner campus in southwest Denver and the Hampden Heights campus in southeast Denver.

Two new school applications — Westside Charter and Denver Dual Language Expeditionary School — are expected to be denied.

The board heard recommendations from Denver’s innovation department, which reviews new school applications, last week. It also heard from community members at a special comment meeting.

Before tonight’s meeting here’s a look at what some members of the public had to say:
