Cherry Creek School District (CCSD) has designed a compensation program to attract, motivate, and retain qualified employees in support of the District’s mission. The program was designed with the assistance and expertise of the Colorado organization Oehm Consulting Services (OCS) and is based on recognized pay practices that strive for equitable pay based on the competitive market value of District jobs.
CCSD participates in a rotation of job description and pay comparison reviews in order to remain competitive in the metro-area market. These market studies are administered by OCS, who conducts similar studies for over 30 other public Colorado school districts. CCSD uses this third-party consultant to perform an impartial market analysis and present objective data and recommendations.
The districts that CCSD is compared to in the market surveys include: Adams 12 Five Star Schools, Aurora Public Schools, Boulder Valley School District, Denver Public Schools, Douglas County School District, Jefferson County Public Schools, Littleton Public Schools, and Westminster Public Schools. Other metro municipalities, government institutions, and the annual Employers Council Benchmark Compensation Survey may also be included when applicable and if there is sufficient data.
Employees can find additional information about compensation, job classification, and the pay practices CCSD implements to determine pay structures and employee pay on the Compensation webpage on the Backyard (employee login required).
All job descriptions will be available soon and posted on our website. These are NOT job openings. Current job openings and announcements can be found on our Careers webpage.
