DPS updates their logo

Detroit Public Schools recently updated their logo. There are many positive things happening within Detroit and the public school system so this new logo seems fitting. The "See it Believe it" tag line is something we at DCP also believe strongly in for the DPS system. The new logo will give others a fresh outlook on Detroit and public education.

 The company, Buildium, is offering its first Women in Technology Scholarship.
