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 October 2013 edition of the DMPS Community Report highlights the growth of our students and the great work of our teachers. Be sure to read reports on how the Iowa Assessments shows academic growth by students at every grade level in the district, while a record number of juniors took the ACT college entrance exam. In addition, two of Iowa’s three math finalists for the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching are educators in Des Moines, as are two of the five finalists to be Iowa Teacher of the Year.
