Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Metropolitan State University of Denver’s School of Education established the Office of Education Solutions (OES) with the goal of providing innovative support to the preK-12 education community. OES works with schools and educational agencies in addressing and seeking solutions in teaching, curriculum, equity, and other persistent problems in preK-12 educational settings in the community, nation, and world.
OES aims to provide support to current and future preK-12 educators via the following programs (expand each program for more information).

IHECP designs individualized, inclusive college experiences for students with learning, intellectual, and developmental disabilities so they can attend classes, interact with instructors and peers, and explore all that college life has to offer.
The MSU Denver Family Literacy Program (FLP) began in 1994. The mission of FLP is “to meet the literacy needs of metropolitan Denver’s lower-income families.” The program works to break the cycle of poverty and low literacy by providing intergenerational, unified family literacy services for those most vulnerable families.
Family literacy classes meet four times per week for adults and children from low-income families. They also offer GED in Spanish and English classes as well as early education classes for parents.
Home visits ensure the needs of each family are addressed and the families remain connected to the learning of their children.
Research shows that early recognition of childhood-learning and health needs is linked to a dramatic increase in future academic success. The OES early childhood education team aims to address the biggest issues facing Colorado’s youngest learners (birth to 8-year-olds) through two projects:
This project will prepare teachers for the new world of remote learning in PreK-12 classrooms. Since teaching via technology is here to stay, it is vital that educators know how to engage students online and make best use of digital resources. The project will continue to integrate technology into teacher education coursework and provide learning opportunities in online and remote teaching best practices.

The diverse students of the School of Education bring with them assets in the form of language, culture, and experiences. It is our students’ rich backgrounds that will make them amazing teacher leaders in our schools!
Presentations at this conference will highlight the assets of a diverse teaching and K-12 student body; such as diversifying the teacher workforce, using language as an asset, and strategies for diverse K-12 students (i.e., Trauma-Informed Practices, cultural responsiveness, emerging bilingual strategies, and bilingualism).
