John Irwin School of Excellence

Congratulations to the Deer Creek teachers, students and our community for once again earning the John Irwin School of Excellence Award!
This award had been temporarily on hold statewide as CDE realigned its assessment criteria. With the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) state assessment now firmly in place, CDE has awarded schools who demonstrate excellent academic achievement. 

Academic achievement is determined by “exceeding” expectations on the school performance framework used by the state to evaluate schools. 

We’d like to thank our students for demonstrating what they know and are able to do on the CMAS state assessment last school year.

Thank you to parents for valuing their student’s participation in the CMAS assessment. At Deer Creek, we do use the data to create school-wide goals, team goals and individual student goals. Last school year, our participation rate for CMAS was 97%, allowing us to exceed the 95% participation rate required to be eligible to be awarded.
