We are embarking upon the 2021 school year. It marks a year different than any other we have ever experienced and as with any major change, the transition to online learning was a learning experience for all of us. Despite challenges and bumps in the road, we are excited for all of the growth and celebrations this upcoming school year will bring.
In Durham Public Schools’ we see this as an opportunity to share knowledge, empower and promote awareness through remote learning district wide. We would like to announce that we have created a plan to grow what was started 2021. During each month, there will be focus on a character trait as well as other designated celebrations that is in response to our DPS student population.
