Farewell, Wikispaces

Do you have a DPS Wikispaces site? If so, please be aware that as of February 28, 2018, the DPS Wikispaces subscription will no longer be available.

With the improvement of online classrooms and professional learning communities through options like Google Sites and Schoology, use of DPS Wikispaces has seen declining participation. In order to better comply with Department of Justice (DOJ) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility requirements and make better use of District funds, the DPS subscription to Wikispaces will end at the end on February 28, 2018.

Access to personal Wikispaces sites and accounts through will also end as of July 31, 2018.

If you have already migrated your DPS Wikispaces content, you don’t need to do anything. If you have DPS Wikispaces content that you are currently using, would like to continue accessing after February 2018, and would like assistance with migrating your content, please contact
