The Rotary Club of Aurora Chartered in 1954
October 3rd, 2018 eBulletin

Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world?

Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group who share your drive to give back.

Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.

Scott Siegfried, Superintendent Cherry Creek School District
Sarah Grobbel, Executive Director of Career and Innovation
Cherry Creek School District
Superintendent Scott Siegfried started the session off addressing the recent news reports associated with Cherry Creek School District.   He described the steps they have taken surrounding mandatory reporting and to insure that students feel safe in CCSD.   Due to these changes and help from the district attorney they have become the model for other school districts to follow concerning mandatory reporting.  He feels like the district is strong and headed in the right direction, particularly surrounding their newest endeavor....the Cherry Creek Innovation Campus (CCIC).  Superintendent Siegfried then introduced Sarah Grobbel, Executive Director of Career and Innovation.  Sarah indicated that CCSD has changed their approach to be inclusive of all students and prepare them for either college or a career and to be the most competitive graduates in the state or country.   

The CCIC will be a stand-alone college and career preparedness facility accessible for high school students in the Cherry Creek Schools.  With curriculum rooted in real-world skills and trade certifications ranging from the computer sciences to aviation to health sciences, this facility will offer students a new kind of bridge to college and viable, successful careers.

The Cherry Creek Innovation Campus is geared toward students who…

… 1) want to go to college. These students are looking for concurrent enrollment or dual enrollment opportunities to earn credit towards a college degree. These students could also be looking to learn a skill set or trade to help pay for college.

… 2) want to go right into the workforce or military after high school. These students want to learn a skill set or trade that will make them more competitive for career preparedness.

… 3) are unsure of what they want to do after high school. These students want to further explore their interests and skill sets to enhance their college and career preparedness. 

Under the Career and Technical Education umbrella, the CCIC will expand the district's commitment to preparing students for the academic and professional demands of the 21st century.  The student learning experience will mimic state-of-the-art work environments, with a focus on putting learners in an industry based culture and climate.

High schools will continue to host a wide range of CTE programs. This new facility will enhance current programming, and will also be home to more advanced and sophisticated educational opportunities for students. ​

Sarah covered a lot of information and we would encourage everyone to go to the CCIC link to really see and learn everything that they are working on at CCSD.  

Thank you Scott and Sarah for your time and sharing all the information about CCSD.
