Palmer one of 10 schools selected for Personal Success Factors Pilot
(From DPS’s Week in Review Publication)
Palmer was selected as one of 10 Denver Public Schools to pilot a new program that helps teachers address the emotional and social needs of their students. Personal Success Factors systematically integrates ways to help kids grow academically, socially and emotionally. While teachers around DPS already help students develop positive behaviors and habits on a daily basis, the personal success factors pilot schools will work with local and national models to learn about the best ways to integrate these personal success factors at school. Learn more about this exciting program by watching this video highlighting how teachers are learning to apply “grit” into their everyday teaching. A big congratulations goes out to Palmer and the other pilot schools: Colfax, College View, Force, Harrington, Steck, Hill, Morey, CLA and Manual.
