In 2020, DPS formed the Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) to advise the Denver Board of Education in all aspects of the budget development process. The BAC serves as a standing committee that will meet throughout the year to review key budget assumptions (such as enrollment and economic forecasts), and collaborate with the board on the formulation of budget development principles and development of the Proposed, Adopted and Amended Budgets, among other key tasks.

Denver Public Schools is fully accredited by the Colorado Department of Education and is subject to periodic monitoring by the State to ensure continued compliance with accreditation standards. Accordingly, DPS has a strong interest in showing how district money is spent in the pursuit of a quality education for all students in DPS.

While DPS has provided financial information online for years, consolidating materials here is an important step toward even greater financial transparency.  As you access these links, know that DPS – with over 93,000 students – is the largest school district in the state and is one of 178 school districts statewide.

Denver Public Schools primarily serves the residents of the City and County of Denver; 53% of the District is Latino, 13.4% is African American, and 25.3% is Anglo. Over sixty-five percent of the District’s students qualify for the federal free lunch program.  DPS is comprised of 76 Elementary, 16 K-8, 12 Middle, 18 High, 31 Charter and 8 Alternative schools. The District’s special education and gifted and talented programs are among the most highly respected programs of their kind in Colorado and the District’s adult education program at Emily Griffith Opportunity School is widely recognized across the country.
