About RootED Denver
We’ve set an audacious goal: All Denver Public Schools students will attend a high-performing school that prepares them for what’s next—success in college, in careers, and in life.
At RootED, we believe students, schools, and communities thrive when they have the access, tools, and resources to drive change. That’s why we provide funding and strategic support to schools and organizations that authentically engage their communities to create world-class public schools for every student in Denver.
Reaching our goal requires a departure from the status quo. The lack of access to a quality education disproportionately affects students of color, low-income students, and students with disabilities. Many of these children, their families, educators, and surrounding communities are left out of efforts to improve their schools.
So, we’re investing in partners that ensure those voices are at the center of decision-making. Specifically, our funding priorities include:
- Empowering students, families, and educators by providing access, tools, and resources for traditionally underrepresented stakeholders to advocate for better educational outcomes
- Expanding high-quality schools — specifically those that successfully serve students who are low-income, students of color, and/or students with disabilities
- Recruiting, developing, and retaining strong teachers and leaders who reflect the diversity of the students they serve
