WHO WE ARE
PHNEE is a group of engaged parents and community members working to ensure that all students attending our neighborhood’s elementary schools get a quality education. We partner with Park Hill Collective Impact, whose mission is to ensure that every single young person in Park Hill is provided the support needed to thrive academically, socially, emotionally, and economically from birth through age 25.
Our unified, engaged, and inclusive community is empowered to drive positive change in Park Hill’s elementary schools to ensure all of our children have access to an equitable education and opportunities to thrive.
Inspired by Park Hill’s legacy of social justice activism, we commit to engage our community in leading the way towards improved equity in our neighborhood elementary schools through awareness building, shared resources, and policy changes.
OUR FOCUS AREAS
We raise awareness in the Park Hill neighborhood and within Denver Public Schools about issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in Park Hill’s elementary schools.
We engage the community to develop an understanding of the impact of district policies on equity in our schools and propose possible solutions to existing inequities.
We identify the resources available (district funding, volunteer support, outside fundraising, special services, etc.) within each school and develop an approach to distributing them more equitably across the schools.
