DPSCreating Connections

Our DPS - Creating Connections_Logo_FINAL (2)

Creating Connections (CC) is designed to be an engaging, fun and informative opportunity to build personal and professional skills while connecting to other Educators from across the district for a greater appreciation of each other and the contributions we all make to DPS.

After attending and engaging in CC educators (ALL DPS employees) should be able to:

  • Articulate, define and demonstrate the DPS Shared Core Values (SCV)
  • Align the SCV to individual, team/department and the district work (Denver Plan) to ensure we reach our vision: Every Child Succeeds
  •  Expand networks and build relationships across the district
  • Assess areas of improvement – personally and professionally
  • Message the importance of SCV with others
  • Demonstrate passion, excitement and enthusiasm for team DPS
  • Communicate personal credo and adjust styles and preferences to work more effectively with others
  • Recognize biases and communicate the definition of equity as it relates to the DPS mission, vision and Shared Core Values
