Collaborative School Committee

CSCEach Denver public school has a Collaborative School Committee (CSC) with representation from parents, community, faculty, administrators, and classified staff. The purpose and scope of the CSC is to enhance student achievement and school climate, and to provide strategic direction supporting the school’s mission and vision as articulated in the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP).

Additional information about the purpose and scope of the CSC is available on the DPS CSC website.

The CSC for the Denver Center for International Studies meets monthly (bimonthly during the budget process), and meetings are open to the public. The first ten minutes are for community comment. Meeting dates, agendas, and minutes are posted below and on a bulletin board outside the main office. Regular updates on CSC business will appear in the monthly newsletter.
