Superintendent Alex Marrero expressed the magnitude of the situation in a message to the community posted on the district’s website. The surge in new students is expected to cost an additional $837,000 to meet the additional needs across the system, putting pressure on the school’s resources.

The district has witnessed a substantial increase in new-to-country students, with 3,221 joining from July 1, 2023, to January 2024. Since October 1, 2023, more than 1,300 new students have enrolled in Denver schools, posing a significant challenge to the educational infrastructure.
