A bimonthly update on DMPS news and information
Des Moines Public Schools publishes its district-wide newsletter, the DMPS Community Report, six times each year. The publication includes features on school district programs, recognition of student and employee accomplishments, and practical information on a range of issues.
The Community Report is distributed via email to all Des Moines Public Schools’ families and employees. It is also made available online and distributed through Facebook and Twitter.
The December 2013 edition of the DMPS Community Report highlights efforts underway to engage middle school students, recent enrollment increases at DMPS, what Standards Referenced Grading means, a new STEM grant for Hoover, and many accomplishments by students and teachers.
