African American Education Network

Black Families Matter

Welcome to the African American Education Network. The purpose of this website is to provide African American students, parents and families with a tool to help navigate PreK-20 education in Denver and beyond. On the site, you will find useful links to DPS student supports and services, college and careers, scholarships, and community-based organizations that provide tutoring and other academic enrichment. In addition, you will find updates on community events, the latest research related to African American students, and resources that will assist students and families in exploring the richness of African American history and culture.

COVID-19 Testing Free to Community

Through a partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, COVIDCheck Colorado has opened up testing sites across the metro area to the broader community, in addition to all members of team DPS. That means anyone can get a COVID-19 test, free of charge! Please share this opportunity with friends and family and help slow the spread of COVID. 

The appointment link for the community differs from that for DPS team members. Schedule your test online here.
