Teacher Evaluation Process

In June, 2013, the Cherry Creek Licensed Personnel Performance Evaluation Council (1338 Council) made recommendations to the Board of Education to adopt the Colorado Model Teacher Evaluation System (CMTS).  Cherry Creek Schools adopted the CMTS and provided district-wide orientation training beginning July, 2013.  


Teacher Quality Standards:

Teachers will be rated on Quality Standards that measure professional practice and student learning over time. Teachers will be evaluated on six Quality Standards. Below is a two-page Teacher Quality Standards overview.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
