Thank you for your interest in our ambassador program! Applications for the 2023-24 program were due August 11, and the cohort is full at this time. We invite you to apply next year in July/August!
The CPCSC Ambassador Program is a seven-session behind-the-scenes look at our district. It is open to residents in the CPCSC boundaries who would like to learn more about our schools and what we do. Topics include finances, operations, curriculum and instruction, and student services.
We ask that ambassadors commit to at least five of the seven sessions (see topics below). Our staff and students help prepare these experiences, and it is important that they have the chance to share their hard work with you.
All experiences are during the school day and are held in the mornings for a two-hour span(we also have breakfast!).
Please plan to attend the April 2024 board meeting to be recognized as an ambassador of the district!
Ambassadors are encouraged to become active attendees of district events in order to get to know our community of students, staff, and families. They will receive passes/tickets to a few extracurricular events, plays, or athletic games throughout the year.
Ambassadors are guests in our buildings and in our classrooms. They are required to follow all safety protocols. They cannot take photos of students or staff during their visit, and they must complete a background check.
Community members who are interested in joining the program must complete an application. To provide a personalized, hands-on experience, the group is limited to 20 individuals.

Join our Department of Exceptional Education and our Department of Curriculum & Instruction to learn more about how our schools are implementing inclusion efforts for every child. Visit our programs and talk with teachers and building administrators about their experiences with inclusion.
