Dr. Cort Monroe July, 2021 Letter to the Community
Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year and thank you for choosing the Cave Creek Unified School District! Your child/children will receive an outstanding education in our schools. Cave Creek Unified is not merely five elementary schools, one middle school and a high school; it is a caring community of people focused on what is best for students. As a small district with approximately 5,200 students, your child will receive personalized attention and will be an integral part of our educational system. Parents are always welcome in our schools as volunteers and are encouraged to become involved in their child’s education.
We have many opportunities to promote student success in and out of the classrooms. Our mission is “Inspire Excellence” and drives our goals for the district. The following are just a few of our highlights:
- Our schools focus on student achievement from the high school, which offers the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, to our full-day kindergarten programs, all focusing on educating the whole child.
- CCUSD consistently scores in the highest range on state-wide assessments, rated #1 in the NE Valley and #5 in Arizona for Unified School Districts.
- Teachers value teaching and learning and strive to reach and teach each child in order to help them develop their unlimited skills, talents and abilities.
- Our extra-curricular programs offer students a well-rounded education ranging from award-winning sports to exemplary programs in the fine arts, as well as preschool, before and after school childcare and community education classes year-round.
- We provide a K-12 World Language Program, fostering multilingualism in our 21st Century learners.
- Safety is a priority, with campus security and crisis plans securely in place, as well as regular parent Safety Forums focusing on all aspects of student safety, health and wellness.
- CCUSD always communicates in a timely manner and will make sure you are well informed about your child’s school and our district. We consistently use school and district newsletters, parent conferences, a community notification phone system, social media and our website found at www.ccusd93.org: all designed to keep you up-to-date. Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs), Site Councils, committees and task forces help strengthen home/school connections and offer an opportunity for your voice to be heard.
We would love to have you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and we are so pleased that you have chosen to become a part of our “Cave Creek Family.” We look forward to seeing you in our schools.
Cort Monroe, Ed.D.
