Detroit Public Schools Community District is committed to ensuring a high-quality school for every student—a school where all students meet or exceed grade-level expectations and graduate from high school prepared for college, career, and life. We are accountable for using existing resources more effectively to support excellence in the classroom and progress toward academic goals.
As part of our program to effectively manage resources, we manage all of our closed buildings to minimize cost and maximize revenues.
