Advisory and Accountability

  • Welcome to a new year at the Challenge School  We look forward to another great year of academic and personal growth for our kids.

    Challenge, like other schools in Cherry Creek, has an advisory and accountability committee as a forum for communication between the administration and the community.  

    Goals

    The primary goal of accountability is to open dialogue and improve transparency within the school. Attendance is open to all and we would welcome your participation and support.  

    Meetings

    We meet periodically through the year and discuss matters that affect our kids and the school at large.  Although individual topics come up as interests or concerns arise, recurring topics include:

    • the school's test results from the annual state-wide testing
    • the school's Unified Improvement Plan (UIP), a living document updated annually to try and develop best practices for our kids
    • staffing and budgeting

    Meetings will be held four times per school year.

    2019-2020 School Year Meeting Schedule:

    1 - Tuesday, October 1, 2019 5:30-7:00 p.m.

    AGENDA - Results of the state CMAS testing and discuss areas where there are opportunities for improvement for Challenge School

    NOTES - In addition to a review of the state testing results, we discussed the future of the immersion program - including the district no longer allowing international travel, the need for immersions to connect to teaching standards and the goal of making all immersions accessible to all students.

    There was also a discussion of creating a survey of Challenge stakeholders in order to get a better understanding of what areas of the Challenge experience were most important and where people thought there was opportunity for growth.
