Board Presentation Highlights Back-to-School Numbers for 2016-17 SY

backtoschoolthumb.jpg​The Cherry Creek School District Board of Education began their second meeting of the 2016-17 school year with an in-depth view into some very important numbers.

The board's meeting on Sept. 12 featured the annual Back to School report, a presentation that covered data ranging from the number of new administrators reporting for the 2016-17 school year to the exact number of breakfasts and lunches that will be served at schools across CCSD's 108 square miles in the coming year.

But the report's most important numbers had everything to do with students. Assistant Superintendent of Educational Operations Brooke Gregory, Executive Director of Elementary School Education Tera Helmon and Executive Director of Middle School Education John Kennedy offered board members a precise view of the heart and soul of the district.

At Pine Ridge Elementary, 787 four-track students kicked off the school year on July 6. More than 4,090 transitional calendar students reported to Aspen Crossing, Black Forest Hills, Buffalo Trail, Coyote Hills, Creekside, Dakota Valley and Mountain Vista elementary schools on Aug. 3. Then there are the 47,004 students who started the traditional 2016-17 year on Aug. 11 – that total includes, 18,104 elementary school students, 12,334 middle school students and 16,566 high school students.

Every other component of the presentation revolved around the students, whether it was a review of the Cherry Creek School District's commitment to inclusive excellence, a discussion of the policies regarding school safety or details about Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in the district. Again and again, the presenters spoke about the district's core values and its commitment to "inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve and to care."

Realizing that mission involves a lot of work from a lot of dedicated people. The presentation spelled out the massive scope and scale of learning in Cherry Creek Schools.

A few highlights:

  • 333 new teachers came to CCSD for the 2016-17 school year, including 135 elementary school teachers, 100 middle school teachers and 88 high school teachers. The total number of classified employees in Cherry Creek Schools is 3,985, while the total number of classified employees including staff support, para-educators, bus drivers and extended child services workers is 4,023.
  • CCSD schools and programs comprise 42 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, seven high schools, one K-8 magnet school, one K-8 charter school, one expulsion program, one intensive care program, three I-Team programs and one transition program.
  • The district's transportation operations includes 301 buses that drive 1,025 routes and transport 24,411 students on a daily basis. Last year, CCSD buses logged 2.5 million miles.
  • The district's student nutrition department serves about 4,700 breakfasts and about 20,300 lunches on a daily basis throughout the school year.
