Welcome to the
Office of School Reform
The Office of School Reform and Innovation (OSRI) cultivates, authorizes, launches, and oversees high-quality autonomous schools (i.e., Performance, Innovation and Charter) in the Denver Public School (DPS) system. Empowered by the Denver Plan, OSRI embraces school autonomy, high performance standards, clear accountability, parental choice, and broad stakeholder engagement.
OSRI envisions a nation where every public education system effectively serves the diverse needs of all children and where every student graduates prepared for success in life.
OSRI will be a national model for transformational change in public education by:
• Improving outcomes for all Denver students by recruiting and supporting a diverse portfolio of high-performing charter and innovation schools that are accountable for results
• Producing transformational changes district-wide by identifying, sharing and facilitating the implementation of innovative, best-in-class policies and practices in all schools and central office departments
