DPS Growing Together Community Discussion
As your principal, I am eager to hear from you as Durham Public Schools rolls out the second phase of our Growing Together academic programs and student assignment plan for the 2024-2025 school year. Please join us for a community meeting on Thursday, April 27th at 6:00 pm to share details and have a discussion about the benefits of this initiative for your child. Hopefully, you have completed the survey sent to your households recently. Your thoughts are necessary and important as we plan for your student’s academic success.

Growing Together is being designed in two phases to ensure diversity and equitable access to academic programs for all Durham Public Schools students. Phase One of the initiative began with elementary school boundary adjustments and academic program enhancements approved by the DPS Board of Education in January. Phase two will focus on middle and high school boundaries and programs.
We’re excited to offer this opportunity and hope that you will join us for information and conversation. The link to register for this event is below.

The first day of Take 2 will consist of remediation only. Testing will begin on Tuesday, June 13th. Transportation will be provided for all students.
