Teachers Coaching Teachers: Denver Public Schools Wants Tax Money To Expand Program

Denver Public Schools has put a lot of stock in the “teacher leadership and collaboration” program, which started in 2013-14 as a grant-funded pilot with 40 schools. It’s now in 113 schools, and the district would like to expand it next year to nearly all of them.

But that will take more money — which is why a $56.6 million tax increase, or mill levy override, Denver voters will consider next month includes $9.8 million for the program.
