“I cannot think of anyone I would rather have representing this community after I leave.  Meg’s passion for our schools and knowledge of the district will help ensure a continued community voice on this board.”

- Jeannie Kaplan, DPS Board Member District 3

“As a former Denver School Board Member, I know the level of commitment and knowledge needed to do this job well.  Like her mother, Kay, who was a great mentor to me, Meg has the passion, drive, and understanding needed to create a world class public school system for all of our students. Meg is not a politician. She is a passionate advocate for Denver’s children who will bring common sense and civility into the boardroom. She is, without question, the best candidate to represent District 3 and I am proud to endorse her.”

- Laura Lefkowits, Former DPS Board Member

“Meg Schomp on the DPS School Board would be a great asset to the students, their families, and the staff who comprise DPS.  During my eight years as Principal at DSA I had the opportunity to work closely with Meg during the planning of the building and as we designed and tweaked the program, hired staff, and built a supportive community framework for the school.

“Needless to say, I had multiple occasions to watch “Meg in action”.   It was remarkable to experience her thoughtful mind, her creative and responsible risk taking, her solid judgment, her understanding of student needs and parent dreams, her political adroitness, her connections to the staff,  her willingness to take strong stands and her willingness to be open to new ideas and flexible in her thinking.

“In every instance her # 1 priority was always to make sure students had a program that challenged them to stretch their learning –  in an environment of high expectations – among people who respected them and cared deeply about their success.”

- Patti Bippus, Former Principal of the Denver School of the Arts

“I have spent the last seven years attempting to unravel the exotic pension financial deals that have cost DPS hundreds of millions of dollars.  What I know about Meg is that she will be an honest and transparent steward of taxpayer money who will make sure that your money goes into the classroom, not into the pockets of bankers, bond lawyers and hedge fund managers.  As a former DPS teacher and administrator, I want to know that my tax monies are spent appropriately.  Meg Schomp will ensure that Denver Dollars are spent on Denver Kids.”

- John MacPherson

“Meg Schomp’s desire for educator excellence is literally in her DNA.  Her mother Kay Schomp was an education civil rights leader during her tenure on the school board a generation ago and her daughter carries that torch today.  Schomp is not only an active parent in her children’s schools, but has also been a community champion for public education.  Her role in both Denver School of the Arts and Denver Green School is admirable, including serving on the board of the DSA Friends Foundation.  Her desire to bring quality parent, teacher, and community driven schools to every neighborhood is what makes her our choice to replace Jeannie Kaplan who, after eight years of serving with distinction, is retiring from the Board.”

- Denver Classroom Teachers Association

“Meg Schomp will be a board member who supports what’s best for the community. She supports teachers, children and the community. I know her well, and she’ll work hard and do a good job! After 35 years working in the public schools as a teacher I feel secure in saying this about her. Vote for Meg Schomp!”

- Sara Schomp

“From my conversations with Meg, what I liked about her the most was her willingness to work with everyone.  I know she will bring the different sides together to do what’s best for Denver’s kids.  I was also impressed by her passion for ensuring a well rounded curriculum for our kids, with arts, music, sports, and other activities so that our students are prepared for 21st century challenges in a global economy.”

- Paul Rosenthal, HD9 State Representative
