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 below for 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.
Studies consistently show that the more involved a parent is, the more successful their child is 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 www.stapletonstp.com
