Community Partnerships

Students at Trevista

We work with partners who are committed to providing programs and services to support the diverse needs of our students. There are currently up to 500 community partners who serve DPS students through programs during and outside of school.

Community Partner Organizations are:

  • Those that provide programs/services to DPS students/families/staff
  • Organizations (nonprofit, government, faith, etc.)
  • Ongoing in one school
  • In multiple schools (ongoing or one-time)
  • Providing services DPS arguably could, but does not

Community Partner Organizations are not:

  • DPS employees
  • Individual volunteers*
  • Individual contracts
  • One time in one school
  • Donors (without self-operated program/services)
  • Researchers (without program/services)

*If you are an individual volunteer please visit the website for Office of Volunteer Services or contact Volunteer_Services@dpsk12.org  to begin the volunteer onboarding process.

Partner onboarding is managed by the Community Partner Manager, Eric Golden, who facilitates the process with all DPS partners. The partnership process includes clear and concise agreements between the community partner and Denver Public Schools, packaged together to complete the DPS Partnership Agreement and Data Protection Addendum. The DPS Partnership Agreement and Data Protection addendum includes: district and partner responsibilities, confidentiality agreements, background check requirements, site/location schedule, and data sharing.
