Discrimination Prevention and Response & Title IX Information

Denver Public Schools is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusiveness. We celebrate our diversity and will provide the necessary resources and supports to eliminate barriers to success and foster a more equitable future for all our community members, students, and employees.

DPS recognizes that discrimination and harassment can interfere with academic performance, job performance, emotional and physical wellbeing, and access to DPS programs and activities. Thus, preventing and remedying discrimination and harassment are essential to the DPS’s mission. Below is a link to the policies and processes we use to support that effort.


Title IX concern? Anyone who has experienced harassment or discrimination has a right to Supportive Measures. Please let us know so we can plan for the complainant’s safety and support. Please share it with us by contacting our Title IX Coordinator:

Nadia Coleman, Ph.D.

Looking for resources?

The Denver Public Schools LGBTQ+ Toolkit is a one-stop resource for supporting LGBTQ+ students, families and team members in our district. This is a living document.

This toolkit outlines practices and policies to support LGBTQ+ students, staff and families in Denver Public Schools. These are rooted in State and Federal law as well as input from LGBTQ+ students, best practices, data and research from leading LGBTQ+ organizations such as The Trevor Project, The Gay and Lesbian Student Education Network (GLSEN), and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
