Birth to Eight Roadmap

In late 2015, Denver Public Schools invited early childhood community leaders to launch the Birth to Eight Roadmap initiative, a new effort that seeks to dramatically improve outcomes and close opportunity gaps amongst the city’s youngest learners.

The Roadmap is grounded in the collective educational vision of Denver Public Schools’ Denver Plan 2020, Mayor Michael B. Hancock’s Five Goals for Youth and the Early Childhood Colorado Framework. In addition, it leverages Denver’s strong early childhood education community.
