If you are new to DPS, please either email Jennifer_Kahn@dpsk12.org or call the front office at 720-424-2640, to obtain your student’s DPS ID number. Once you have the number, you can proceed on the Portal.
Report cards are available on the DPS Parent Portal
The school does not print report cards (with a few exceptions). This saves valuable time and money through staff hours, paper and thousands of envelopes!
To view report cards via Portal, log into your Portal account and click on the “Grades” tab on the left side of the page.
On your student’s progress report, you will see standards with a grade of 1-4 next to them or possibly a “NA.”
Please remember when reviewing the progress report that the “old school” letter grade is very different than the number system. A “4” does not coincide with an “A” and a “3” does not coincide with a “B” and so on down the line.
4 means that the student is on track to be significantly above grade level. This usually correlates with being able to complete work that is one grade level higher than the grade they are currently in.
3 means that the student is proficient in their understanding of the standard and on track to have it mastered at the end of the year.
2 means that the student is approaching proficiency towards a standard. This will mean that the student has some of the skills to complete grade level tasks. In some instances the student can demonstrate proficiency in the standard with some support, in other instances the student can demonstrate proficiency in the standard on an inconsistent basis.
1 means that the student is having great difficulty in achieving the standard.
The Denver Public Schools curriculum provides instruction to meet the Common Core Standards. For more information, please visit: http://www.corestandards.org

If you have not created a Parent Portal account yet, you will need your student’s DPS ID number. Please email Jennifer_Kahn@dpsk12.org to get that information. Once you have that number, you can get started.
Here are the steps to request a Parent Portal account
Completely fill out the online form. You will need an email address to complete the process.
If possible, enter all of your students during the same initial session for setup as there have been occasional glitches when saving and going back into the Portal to enter additional students. If you currently have an account and need help with your user name or password, go to the Portal’s login page and click “forgot username or password.”
**Please note: it could take up to 5-7 business days to open your account, especially during “peak season” of Choice and Registration, so don’t wait, get your account now!
What to expect after you submit the online form to the DPS Parent Portal Team
If the information you submit matches the information in our student data system, you will receive an email from the DPS Portal Team with a link to activate your account. Click the link, and you will receive another email with your username and password (please check junk, spam, etc. if you do not receive it in your inbox).
If information is missing from the form or doesn’t match what is in the student data system, you will receive an email or call from the Parent Portal Team before your account request can be processed.
