Collaborative School Committee (CSC)

The Collaborative School Committee (CSC) is a representative board consisting of the principal, elected and appointed parent representatives, teachers, support staff, and community members.In a commitment to equity and providing high quality opportunities for all students, parents on the Committeee are representative of the diversity of Lowry Elementary School.

The purpose of the CSC is to implement strategies for the achievement of all Lowry students.  One way that this is done is by creating, guiding and evaluating a Unified Improvement Plan (UIP).  The CSC is a policy-setting and decision-making body of our school.  It does not operate on a budget, but makes decisions about how funds received from DPS, supplementary grants, PTO and the Aviator Fund would be best spent to support the Unified Improvement Plan.

All CSC meetings are open to the public and are held from 5:45 – 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room at Lowry Elementary School.  An agenda will be posted in the school building on the CSC bulletin board in the community room and can also be found on the Lowry Elementary School website 24 hours before eachCSC meeting.  Following all CSC meetings, the minutes will be posted on the website and CSC bulletin board to inform the public of all issues discussed in CSC meetings.  A list of committee members can be accessed above.

For any additional questions, concerns, and/or comments, please contact  – Theress Pidick Theress_Pidick@dpsk12.org,  current CSC chairperson.
