Kwame's Priorities for DPS:
Pay our teachers the most in the region
Smaller class sizes
Build affordable housing for teachers
Keep our schools excellent and safe
WHY I’M RUNNING
I'm the son of a Denver Public Schools teacher. Proud DPS graduate. Tattered Cover owner. I’m running for the School Board because I have the experience to help make our schools safe, focused on academic excellence, and ready for the next generation of leaders.
“I believe in Denver Public Schools.
I am the son of a DPS teacher and a DPS graduate. I know two things about DPS: its role is to support our students, teachers, and community, and at its best, DPS can positively transform lives and outcomes. The latter is what happened to me.
DPS is at an inflection point. We need new leadership to help us address safety, teacher compensation, and our achievement gap. I see a future where 100% of our third graders can be at reading level, 100% of our high school students can graduate, and 100% of our students can feel safe in school.
I have the experience to help the district.”
