CC4E is an independent group of 18 volunteer community members formed to inspire a dialogue about the future of Steamboat schools. The committee includes individual representatives from each school’s Parent Information Committee and one from the District Accountability Committee plus three district employees — the superintendent, a principal, a teacher and a high school student. It also includes a city staff member, county representative, a representative from the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association, a retiree, the parent of a preschool student and four at-large community members identified to help make sure the committee represents many cross sections of the community.

The ultimate goal of the committee is The Best Education for Our Students. In this effort we will strive to build trust and credibility with the community, create well-informed and empowered staff, parents and community members, generate enthusiasm around the successes of our schools and help foster continued two-way dialogue.
