Thank you for your continued partnership in the principal selection process so far. We are pleased to share
that we have three strong candidates for East High School that will participate in the final steps of the process.
Community engagement is still a vital part of principal selection in DPS so we have adopted a virtual
community presentation process to allow the community to hear from our top candidates. This process will
consist of the following:

  • Finalist candidates will submit a pre-recorded presentation sharing a short summary of their vision for East High School, and respond to questions generated through the previous community input survey.
  • Candidate presentations and question responses will be posted along with candidate biographies on the East High School website. Both the recorded presentation and bio will be posted to the school’s website for 5 days along with a survey where we invite community members to submit your feedback on candidates’ strengths and considerations to help inform the final hiring decision made by the superintendent.

We highly value the voices of all our stakeholders. To honor this, we would like to invite staff, students, parents, and community members to view the candidate presentations and bios at https://east.dpsk12.org/news/2021/02/east-high-school-principal-candidates/

Please share your feedback on the strengths and considerations of the candidates based on their presentations and the needs of East High School. Feedback can be submitted using the link below or by contacting Daisy Garrison-Davis from the Office of Family & Community Engagement by phone at 720-423-3932 or email to Daisy_Garrison-Davis@dpsk12.org. Please complete all feedback by March 1, 2021 at 5:00pm.

Community Feedback Survey (English/Spanish): Closed

After the community input window closes, feedback will be compiled to share with the superintendent to help inform the final selection of a new leader for East High School. Candidates will participate in an interview with Interim Superintendent Dr. Dwight Jones and Deputy Superintendent of Schools Michael Ramirez as the final step in the selection process.

We thank you again for your flexibility as we adapt to the needs of the current remote circumstances and still look for ways to ensure voices of the community are represented.

Sincerely,

Greta Martinez,
Regional Instructional Superintendent, Central Region
