Thank you Board of Education members!
The five members of the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education are dedicated public servants – unpaid volunteers – who work diligently to ensure that the children of Cherry Creek receive the best education possible – one that prepares them for success in college, the military, the workplace and as contributing members of our democratic society.

January is School Board Recognition Month and the Cherry Creek School District is proud to acknowledge the steadfast commitment and invaluable contributions made by the members of the Board of Education; Karen Fisher, Claudine McDonald, Jim O’Brien, Randy Perlis and David Willman.

“How fortunate we are to have these selfless volunteers leading our district,” said Dr. Harry Bull, superintendent of Cherry Creek Schools. “They give generously of their time to thoroughly study and carefully consider many challenging and complex issues. Every decision they make is based on what is in the best interest of our students.”

Board members are responsible for the academic success of more than 51,000 students, as well as the efficient management of a district with nearly 9,000 full and part-time employees and an annual general fund budget of over $400 million. They spend countless hours studying 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.

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
