Educators at Montbello Campuses to Conduct Solidarity Walk-Ins
DENVER – Denver Classroom Teachers Association members and educators at DCIS Montbello, Collegiate Prep Academy and Noel Community Arts, in a show of solidarity, will collectively walk into schools at 7:45 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 22.
WHAT: Educator Walk-Ins
WHEN: 7:45 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 22
WHERE: Montbello Campus – 5000 Crown Blvd, Denver, CO 80239
WHY: In 2020, the DPS School Board passed the Reimagining Montbello resolution, which would unify the existing school communities of DCIS-Montbello, Noel Community Arts School and Collegiate Preparatory Academy. The Montbello campus would instead be a large comprehensive high school and middle school. Denver Public Schools is treating the unification of the Montbello campuses as a school closure process. This process means that all staff members will be terminated and given the option to go through a re-hiring process without the guarantee of having a position the next year.
