Community Outreach. Public Input.

With more than 30,000 students and nearly 5,000 employees, there are a lot of stories to tell about the work and accomplishments within Des Moines Public Schools. And there is a lot of information to share, from school registration to high school graduation and countless things in between.

The Communications & Public Affairs office works closely with administration and staff to inform employees and the public about what’s happening in the district. Please visit the links to the right to see our most recent news releases, stories from the Blog@DMPS, video from DMPS-TV (our 24/7 cable channel), or subscribe to TheWeek@DMPS,  our award-winning weekly e-newsletter.
