• Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) offer students various opportunities including: professional development, community service, business and industry connections, financial leadership, public relations, and social events.  The culmination of a CTSO is a competitive event or conference where students apply and display the various skills they have acquired throughout the year and their whole K-12 experience.  At CCSD, we want to celebrate the awards and recognition of our students and CTSO advisors.  

    DECA chapters at Cherry Creek High School and Cherokee Trail High School earned the THRIVE Level of recognition for conducting an outstanding Membership Campaign to raise awareness of the awesome things their DECA chapters are doing!  Students from Cherry Creek and Cherokee Trail that participated in the campaign will get to attend DECA's International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida.
