Our Work

RootED works to unite groups that have held opposing viewpoints to advance a shared vision of equity and opportunity for all Denver Public Schools students. We empower and partner with the communities most impacted by educational inequity. And we partner with Denver Public Schools to advance equity system wide.

Funding Autonomous Public Schools

Because they have the flexibility to respond and adapt quickly to meet community needs, autonomous schools can be an effective strategy to address equity and opportunity gaps and improve the quality of public K-12 education.
