Collaborative School Committee (CSC)

Each Denver Public school has a Collaborative School Committee (CSC) with representation from parents, teachers, administration, classified staff, and community. The purpose and scope of the CSC is to enhance student achievement and school climate by engaging the school community in collaborative efforts supporting the school and District’s goals. The CSC provides strategic direction in support of the school’s mission and vision as stated in the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP). Additional information about the purpose and scope of the CSC is available on the DPS website.

Meeting dates, agendas, and minutes will be posted under the CSC link. CSC representatives welcome your questions and input. Questions and input should be related to the purpose and scope of the CSC as outlined above.

A+ Angels Mentoring

Would You Like To Change A Life? Would You Like To Be An Academic Mentor?

The A+ Angels Mentoring Program is an important way in which East High School is addressing the achievement gap and helping struggling students. The program currently has more than 70 pairs of East High School students and adult mentors, each meeting about once a week. Mentors help the students adjust to high school by aiding them with their schedules, helping them with homework, working with them on study skills, fostering good attendance and study habits, and providing encouragement and accountability. Mentors also help their students obtain summer jobs and prepare college applications. All mentors, as well as the coordinators of the program, are volunteers and most work full time in jobs unrelated to education.
