Collaborative School Committee

DSA Collaborative School Committee

The purpose of the Collaborative School Committee (CSC) is to enhance student achievement and school climate by engaging the school community in collaborative efforts that support school-wide and district goals. The CSC provides strategic direction in support of the school’s mission and vision as stated in the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP).


The Denver School of the Arts Collaborative School Committee (CSC) is the Colorado law-mandated body, which “brings together families, staff, and community members, to increase the amount of accountability and FAMILY involvement … [and]… create and implement a plan to promote high achievement” within each school in Colorado. 

Being a part of the CSC is an exciting opportunity to be involved in our school community and participate in the education of our students. The CSC is also vital to establishing a healthy school environment and promoting important collaborative initiatives in various areas. DSA is currently working towards very important goals. Thus, now more than ever, it is vital that DSA families, leadership, faculty, staff, and students work together towards achieving them.

DSA-CSC Bylaws are available here.
