You have a voice, and it matters!

We want to hear from you!

The Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education is conducting an extensive community engagement process to gather input that will be used to inform the selection of a new superintendent. As part of that process, the Board is hosting a series of virtual Zoom forums to gather feedback about what values and characteristics parents, students and staff want to see in the next leader.

After Superintendent Scott Siegfried announced his intent to retire at the end of this school year, the Board hired the independent consultant team of Bruce Caughey and Steven Herzog to conduct the community engagement process. Feedback will be collected from a range of stakeholders representing parents, students, teachers, administrators and school staff via an online survey and a series of virtual forums and focus groups. The schedule for the online forums is as follows:

  • Saturday, Feb. 13 at 10 a.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 18 at 4 p.m.

Please use this Sign-up Genius link to register for one of the online forums:

This engagement process and leadership transition come at a challenging time – during an ongoing pandemic that has dramatically impacted the educational experiences of our children. It is more important than ever that we bring our stakeholders together to give input in the superintendent selection process and for our educational priorities as we come out of this pandemic.

We thank you for your support of Cherry Creek Schools students.
