School Districts

Community Partnership Model

Our district partnership model focuses on combining the knowledge of district leaders with the expertise of CU Denver School of Education & Human Development faculty to develop courses that bridge the gap between research and practice. CPE partners with school districts around Colorado to provide educators with on-site training that meets their specific needs while creating opportunities to complete advanced degrees.

Providing Lifelong Learning for Educators

CPE consults with you to embed professional development in your staff’s daily practice through weekly staff development times, team-level shared planning time, professional learning communities and ongoing coaching supports. We offer university credit for your already existing courses, or we can perform a needs assessment and evaluation of your current offerings.

You may also choose to develop individual courses or a complete graduate certificate program that provides participants with a practical course of study and a pathway to state endorsement and/or completion of a master’s degree.

Current school district partners include:

Aurora Public Schools

Cherry Creek School District

Denver Public Schools

Douglas County School District

Jefferson County Public Schools

Littleton Public Schools

Course Offerings

Existing program and course offerings include Literacy, Linguistically Diverse Education, Teacher Education, Special Education, School Psychology, Leadership, Information and Learning Technologies and Math. Visit our Certificates page to see the complete list.


To find out more about how we can partner with your district, please contact Shelley Zion, Executive Director of Continuing and Professional Education, at or 303-315-4920.
