Skinner Collaborative School Committee

Each Denver Public School has a Collaborative School Committee (CSC) formed by community stakeholders to serve as a leadership body for school accountability. The CSC is comprised of educators, parents, and community members to enhance student achievement, parent engagement, and school climate through collaborative efforts.

The meeting minutes from CSC meetings are available and give great insight into important decisions about our school. Please click here to view the CSC meeting minutes.

CSC duties include:

  • Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) – Review the school’s achievement data, define goals and strategies to drive continued growth and improvement in school performance
  • Staffing Allocations – Assist the principal by making recommendations concerning the use of the staffing allocations provided to the school by the Board of Education
  • Annual School Budget – Review and approve the annual school budget according to district guidelines that supports the objectives of the UIP
  • Calendar and/or Schedule – Making recommendations related to achieving school goals
  • Academic Issues (including related policies and procedures) – Gather input from Skinner parents, teachers, and community members, discuss and make recommendations on academic issues as appropriate

Per DCTA 8-5: “The principal shall report to the CSC, after the roster verification process, the number of students in each class and this will be published in the CSC minutes on the school’s website. For the purposes of this section, a “class” shall be defined as any general education, including electives and model one classes.
Upon request, after the roster verification process, the District shall provide the Association with the student information management system data regarding class enrollment.”

The CSC will not:

  • Be involved in issues relating to individuals (staff, students, or parents) within the school.
  • Be involved in personnel issues.

Additional information about the purpose and scope of the CSC is available on the DPS website.

The Skinner CSC meets monthly in the school library. Meetings are open to the public and we welcome and encourage community participation.
