Super Search

On July 17, Superintendent Tom Boasberg announced he would be stepping down as district superintendent after a decade in the position. Tom has led the district through a number of progressive initiatives, including developing a framework for district success — Denver Plan 2020.

This departure means that DPS is now engaged in the search for a new district leader, particularly someone who aligns with the past, present and future of DPS and someone who can build upon success already achieved toward Denver Plan 2020.

With the assistance of an outside education consulting firm who will be handling the HR components of the process, DPS will engage in a three-phase process through the rest of the year — Super Search!
