2/8 DPS Strike Updates

You have likely heard already that Governor Polis has decided against intervening in the DPS-DCTA contract negotiations.  As we understand it, DPS and DCTA are tentatively scheduled to continue bargaining today, but under state law DCTA is now free to proceed with a strike and has stated its intention to begin striking Monday, February 11th.  As we have mentioned in earlier communications, DSST is not involved in these negotiations and accordingly, all DSST Schools will remain open, operating with normal schedules and staff.
