CSC Elections Letter
Dear Samuels Families:
Every school within the Denver Public School District has a Collaborative School Committee (CSC) in place. The CSC brings together staff, parents, students, and community members to create and implement a plan to promote high achievement within the school.
Being a part of the CSC is an exciting opportunity to be involved in our school community, not to mention to participate in the education of all our students. Our school is working towards some great goals and we believe that by working together, we can achieve them!
This year we have 1 opening on our CSC. We will meet from 5-6 PM on the following dates:
- October 14th
- November 4th
- January 27th
- March 9th
- April 13th
Additionally, we may have extra meetings during the month of February. We ask that CSC members participate in the meetings and commit to being a member for two years, or one year where it applies.
If you are interested in your name being placed on the ballot for one of the parent representative openings, please fill out the nomination form included in this letter and return it to the main office by Friday, October 4th.
If you would like more information concerning the CSC before making a decision, please feel free to contact our school-based CSC Co-Chairperson, Sharlyn Flaxer at 720-424-4453 or email Sharlyn_Flaxer@dpsk12.org or our parent CSC Co-Chairperson, Chad Rogers at 303-725-7385 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We encourage you to participate in this great work for our children!
