Congratulations to our September 2021 #WeAreDPS Student of the Month Esvin Vasquez-Colaj. Vasquez-Colaj is a senior at Middle College High School at Durham Technical Community College. He will be recognized during our DPS Board of Education meeting on September 23.
Durham Public Schools will soon break ground for a new elementary school in South Durham, and the district is seeking assistance with naming the new school.
At last night’s Work Session, our Board of Education made two important decisions that I want you to be aware of.
Through all the challenges of remote and hybrid learning during the 2020-21 school year, a full-court press by Durham Public Schools teachers and support staff helped last year’s seniors graduate on time from high school at their highest rate since DPS superintendent Dr. Pascal Mubenga’s arrival.
Ms. Asia Cunningham previously served Pearsontown as a teacher and staff member from 2009 to 2016.

Children have to get vaccinated for less urgent threats—and it works. So why not with Covid?
