“Empower Schools allows for the change that needs to happen for our kids.”

“What impresses me is their commitment to communities and school level autonomy. When I think of Empower Schools, I think of freedom – freedom from the restraints that come with being part of a larger system and freedom to innovate so schools can make decisions that best meet the needs of their students and communities. They understand that schools are the nexus of change in education and should be empowered to serve their communities. When we set up only the second Empowerment Zone in Denver, being able to look to Empower Schools and rely on their experience and expertise was really important to us. There is no way this is something we could have done on our own.”
