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
Current school district partners include:
Aurora Public Schools
Cherry Creek School District

Littleton Public Schools
Existing program and course offerings include Literacy,
Linguistically Diverse Education, Teacher Education, Special Education, School
Psychology, Leadership, Information and Learning Technologies and Math.
