DPS has received three applications for proposed new charter schools seeking to open in fall 2023. While the district has not identified a need for new schools in 2023 due in part to declining enrollment, DPS will review all applications as required by Colorado law. Come learn more about how proposed new schools are evaluated, ask questions of the applicants, and share your feedback. The DPS Board of Education will consider community feedback and vote on whether to approve or deny each application. View each school’s application here.
