FALL OF 2020 UPDATES!!!
FALL SEMESTER 2020 WILL BEGIN WITH REMOTE LEARNING
Denver Public Schools announced on July 17 that the 2020-2021 school year will begin with remote learning for all students K-12:
Remote classes will officially begin on August 24, which is one week later than originally scheduled.
100% remote learning will continue until at least September 8th, 2020 at which time DPS will weigh options for shifting to hybrid or full in-person learning plans.
Additional information will be communicated to staff, students and families from DPS and/or DSA leadership.
Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility. Please know that I am committed to fostering the most robust and impactful remote learning experience possible to ensure that every student receives the academic, social emotional and individualized supports they need. Please direct course-specific questions to me via email, the parents' corner and/or my google voice #.

Welcome to Mr. Fox's Course Page!
DSA Students and Parents,
Thank you for visiting our course webpage! As young scholars of the social sciences, it is my vision that all DSA students enter class not only with a refined and well-rounded work ethic, but also with the passion to utilize these skills and newly acquired knowledge to make the world a better place.
AP Human Geography and 10th Grade US History will be rigorously structured to promote and foster skills that are essential to becoming a leader in today's world. DSA students have been given a unique opportunity to their creative minds on a daily basis, and such idiosyncrasies will be frequently called upon to better understand, analyze and utilize course content. I truly believe that pushing students to demonstrate their artistic and academic leadership skills will provide a more empathetic understanding of the world's social phenomena . As many DSA students are already very passionate about the status of their fellow man, I ask that they focus that positive vigor by reflecting on the content's relevance to their individual visions of social progress.
Please feel free to not only explore this website (still under construction), but also please note my contact information for any questions or introduction. I am looking forward to welcoming students and parents alike to the 2018-19 school year at DSA. I am extremely excited to work with all of you this year and welcome!
