In order to be eligible to run for the CCA Board, candidates must have at least one student who is returning to CCA for the upcoming school year.
In order to be eligible to run for the CCA Board, candidates must have completed and have documented (under their own unique volunteer account through the current CCA volunteer hours’ database) at least 50% of their annual volunteer hours (20 of 40 hours per family, or 10 of 20 hours per single parent) by the time of nomination.
For more details about the Election process, please click here to view the Board Election Policy.
The Election will be held by an electronic ballot. A unique and confidential electronic ballot will be sent to the email address listed in PowerSchool for each parent/guardian.
Due to an update in Powerschool in the District, the only way for you to change your email addresses and phone numbers as of right now is to contact the school and have us change them manually. This is crucial to know with an election coming up as the ballot is only delivered to the emails on file in Powerschool. If you would like to change your email address please fill out this quick form or if you have any questions please feel free to email Rachel Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please update your email address in PowerSchool by May 3, 2022.

New Volunteer Process
New Colorado legislation has prompted greater need to screen and document volunteers in our schools. Therefore, beginning January 2022, we must ensure that every person entering CCA must have a CCA staff badge or a visitor badge printed from the Raptor System. Please be sure to have your identification on you so that you can share that with Ms. Sadie if you need to enter CCA. Using the raptor system Ms. Sadie will then print a Raptor ID badge for you.
CCSD is also requiring that every volunteer complete a brief application to support activities in CCSD schools. This application links directly to CCSD's raptor system.
To access the new form, please click on the following link: https://apps.raptortech.com/Apply/NzU0OmVuLVVT
