Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education: Dedicated volunteers doing what is best for students
January is School Board Recognition Month and the Cherry Creek School District is proud to acknowledge the dedicated service and invaluable contributions made by the members of the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education; Jennifer Churchfield, Claudine McDonald, Jim O’Brien, Randy Perlis and David Willman.

The board members – who are unpaid volunteers – spend countless hours studying complex issues such as student achievement and school finance, working with lawmakers and educational experts, meeting with district administrators, teachers, staff members, parents and students, and attending school and district events. They are responsible for the academic success of 51,000 students, as well as the efficient management of a district with 7,500 full and part-time employees and an annual general fund budget of just over $400 million.

“The members of the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education lead with integrity and careful consideration of what is in the best interest of students,” said Superintendent Mary Chesley. "Their service ensures that decisions about our schools are made by people who are most familiar with the needs of our students and the expectations of our parents and community.”

Each board member represents one of the district’s five director districts, but they are elected ‘at-large’ to four-year terms by registered voters via a non-partisan ballot.

Board of Education meetings are generally held at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of the month at one of the Cherry Creek schools.  Contact information for the Board of Education is 720-554-4300 or
