DPS has banned a co-founder of its HBCU-style high school from campus and terminated his volunteer role

Denverite: Denver Public Schools (DPS) has banned Brandon Pryor, co-founder of Robert F. Smith STEAM Academy (RFSS), from attending events and entering most school buildings, and terminated his role as DPS volunteer and football coach.

The letter DPS sent Pryor Tuesday cites “repeated abusive, bullying, threatening, and intimidating conduct directed at staff of the Denver Public Schools” as the reasoning behind the ban. The letter calls the language “inappropriate,” “harmful” and in violation of DPS policies.

Denverite obtained the letter through an open records request and, in its response, DPS included numerous screenshots of Pryor’s text messages, social media posts and other interactions, many of which call for resignations and firings and some of which include expletives and strong language toward school officials.
