Do you want to be a part of something big at CRCSD and make a difference in the lives of our students? We are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join the School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) for the 2023-24 school year. To learn more about SIAC, click here.

We are looking for students, families, community members, and district staff to join us as we tackle our next challenge – College and Career Readiness! This year, the purpose of the committee is to provide input and feedback on our plan to ensure every learner has a plan, pathway, and passion when they graduate from CRCSD. We aim to ensure every CRCSD graduate leaves with college credit and/or industry certification by May 2027. Key areas of focus will be:

  1. Vision, Mission, and Design – Create aligned K-12 vision, mission, and design for career pathways.
  2. Career pathways – Define 4-6 high-skill, high-wage, high-demand career pathways that meet the demands of the Cedar Rapids metro area labor market.
  3. Key skills and success indicators – Define the success indicators for our Profile of a Graduate.
  4. Programming and support continuum – Design K-12 programming to prepare students to be ready to pursue their passion area.
  5. Marketing and branding – Review marketing and branding materials for our pathways programming.

This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of the team that helps guide CRCSD towards success.
