Parent Portal

Denver Public Schools (DPS) offers parents the Parent Portal, a program that allows you to access accurate, current, and confidential information about your child’s school attendance, grades, class assignments, and more. Please see the attachments below for the Parent Portal Agreement, which must be signed in front of a school staff member to be valid, and a quick reference guide from DPS. Please contact the Parent Portal Hotline with questions: 720-423-3163.

Note that the Parent Portal is separate from the Student Portal, which allows students to access their own information. Students may contact their Deans with questions or if in need of assistance. Learn more about the Parent/Student Portal by downloading the Parent Toolkit: English, Español. The Portal Team has also coordinated a variety of training resources for parents/guardians. Please visit their website for additional resources.

Transportation Information

DSST: Stapleton  High School has partnered with Way to Go to assist families who may not live close to the school (or Success Express locations) and need to carpool with other families.  Families should receive information from Way to Go at the beginning of the school year.

Science and Tech Parent Group

Studies consistently show that the more involved a parent is, the better their child does in school. A great way to get involved is by participating in our parent volunteer organization, the Science and Tech Parents (STP) group. Parents are encouraged to participate in the STP which focuses on helping parents utilize their talent, energy and resources to support DSST's efforts to provide every child with an outstanding education. All parents are automatically members of this group and are welcome at each meeting. There are no membership dues required to participate.


The STP is very excited to announce the launch of our new website!  It’s a great place to keep up-to-date on school and STP activities as well as to learn about clubs, events, and programs as well as volunteer and fundraising activities.  Learn more and keep up-to-date by visiting


Meetings are held 6:30 – 8:00pm in the Greenberg Commons in the High School the second Tuesday of each month that school is in session. Please visit the STP calendar for details. (LINK:

Throughout our network we have had a number of questions posed by families in regards to immigration policy changes at the federal level and how that impacts individuals in the community. We have created this guide as a response to these inquiries.

If you have specific questions please feel free to reach out to DSST’s Manager of Advocacy, Hillary Hoffman at or call our main line at 303-802-4140 to get transferred to Hillary.

As always, we are committed to the emotional safety of our students. 

Purposes of this guide:

  • Provide information about who families can reach out to for help within the community.
  • Provide general guidance on your legal rights in event of an immigration visit or raid.
  • Always seek the advice of an immigration lawyer on all legal issues. This guide is not meant to provide formal legal counsel.
  • Make sure that the sources you are using for updates and news are trusted and reliable sources.  

In  addition, DSST stands by our Gender Identity Policy and Guidelines and will continue to stand in support of our gender diverse staff, students and families.  

Avoid the wait and pay online for maximum convenience. Options are available online to pay partial amounts if you would like to establish a payment plan or can only pay a portion of the total fee. All school fee amounts go to support computer hardware, software, student activities, trips and supplies for your student.
